The definitive photographic record of Southern Africa's premier mineral-producing localities
During the past 40 years, Desmond Sacco has carefully assembled one of the finest collections of Southern African mineral specimens. This collection is acknowledged by experts to be one of the best in the world. Exceptional quality mineral specimens and aesthetic rarities are signature qualities. ‘One-of-a-kind’ specimens abound and there is such depth and variety that many individual species are represented by dozens of different examples.
The Desmond Sacco Collection is a benchmark publication for comparative purposes for other collections that contain southern African mineral specimens. It is a valuable African publication as it documents the finest minerals that Southern Africa has brought forth over the past several decades.
