For more than four decades we at TOPSTONES have been producing large quantities of top quality tumbled gemstones at competitive prices. We produce 180 different stone varieties and up to 60 tons of tumbled stones a month. Our raw material is sourced from all over the world, especially from the Southern African countries, and brought to our factory where it is crushed, tumbled, polished and screened into 11 different sizes. All our stones are meticulously hand sorted and our orders are shipped to all parts of the world.
We have a large wholesale showroom for trade only, from which we sell all our own stones, as well as souvenir gift items, jewellery and mineral specimens sourced from all parts of the World. We supply other wholesale dealers and retailers throughout the country. Situated on the premises, our retail factory shop, MINERAL WORLD, offers visitors anything from rough stones, fossils, gift items, gold and silver jewellery to investment gems.
In 1981 we introduced the Scratch Patch concept at our Simon’s Town factory whereby visitors scratch around on a thick bed of gemstones selecting their favourite stones. This became such a popular activity for children of all ages as well as adults, that it has since been copied in many parts of the world.
