⛰ Dioptase ⛰
Tsumeb Mine, Oshikoto Region, Namibia
3.5 x 3.8 x 2 cm
I'm beginning to run out of ways to say this is a fantastic dioptase specimen... This is a fantastic dioptase specimen. Rock had a LOT of these green beauties lying around, more than any reasonable individual would expect. While a far cry from the shipping containers full of the stuff that he used to get, Rock still kept a couple of flats of the material on hand. Every piece was of incredible quality, cherry picked from the wholesale material for various reasons. -
And who can blame him? With such dazzling crystal faces and incredible depth of color, dioptase is a top choice for many a collector. While never prolific, per se, this material used to flow steadily from Tsumeb. Now, those days of abundance are but a fond memory with only pieces like this to serve as a reminder.
After my morbid post yesterday I wanted to show a happy seal, and why we are so obsessed with keeping them this way. As you can see the youngsters are extremely playful and inquisitive, and this unfortunately leads them into trouble. They pick up anything they find in the water and play with it. This however often leads to entanglements..... Let's keep our seals happy🙂🙂 @gopro #happyseals #sealrescue #namibia #pelicanpointkayaking

Namibia...✨🧡 The rust-red dunes, bleached white pans and deep blue skies —This landscape symbolises more than the country's vast, dry and uninhabited expanses, these are the places on our planet that are currently under-threat. ✧
Namibia has been classified as one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change in the world, with the landscape being particularly in danger to natural hazards like droughts and floods. The country faces the possibility of significant agricultural production loss, where more than 70% of the population directly depend on food security for their survival. The last year is believed to be one of the worst, with many parts of the country not receiving significant rainfall as of yet, and indicating a further risk towards a severe drought situation. Ironically when rain does fall, it is expected to be much heavier, increasing the risk of heavy flooding within an overall drying climate. ✧
Since Namibia is home to several different eco- regions ( tropical, semiarid, desert), these particular challenges posed by climate change will vary by region. The decline in water availability, increasing temperatures due to higher evapotranspiration, and changing patterns of rainfall will all impact the country’s water resources and overall wellbeing of both the ecosystems and the people who live in these communities. ✧
Over the last few years I have developed such a deep connection with this country, the landscape and it’s people – I feel privileged to have visited such a place, although at the same time it dawns on me what the future will hold. All of our choices have an impact and it’s a sad reality that the choices made by the developed world are the ones that will impact the most vulnerable communities on our planet. By bringing awareness to these issues I hope we can try to understand how interconnected our world really is and with each and every choice we create a ripple effect. 🖤

Beautiful capture by @travel_with_mouss showcasing just how wonderful the waterholes at Etosha National park are. We could sit for hours waiting to see which animals come down for a drink and observing how they interact with each other! The striped pattern of zebra is unique to each individual, much like a human fingerprint. The purpose of the stripes has been debated for many years and remains without definitive explanation. The idea that it makes individuals difficult to see within the herd and so protects against predators is interesting but animals that display this kind of ‘crypsis’ are usually quiet and inclined to hide as well, whereas zebra are noisy, frequently traverse open terrain and herd quite loosely which rather negates the theory. Other explanations for the stripes include social recognition between individuals, heat regulation and some experimental evidence that suggests that biting flies are confused by the markings and discouraged from attacking. The search for definitive answers continues!
We love Etosha National Park in Namibia 🇳🇦 and wanted to start this #etoshaexplorer community to feature park visitors' photographs and stories.

Join @AwayToAfrica to explore the diverse terrain of Namibia, meet and vibe with the women of the Himba tribe and see where the ocean and sand dunes meet on the following dates:
Option 1: October 30 - November 9, 2019
Option 2: November 1 - November 9, 2019.
Namibia has great linguistic variety, with most Namibians speaking Bantu languages like Oshiwambo and Otjiherero as their first language.
The Mundari are a small ethnic group of South Sudan and one of the Nilotic peoples.
Gender roles are generally well-defined in Namibia. Men are expected to build and maintain homes, work in the field, tend to the livestock, plow fields, etc. Livestock is main source of pride and wealth for the Mundari tribe. As like most traditional tribes, women do the household work, tend to the children, prepare food, as well as provide agricultural labor.
