Brandberg amethyst is named for the soaring mass of granite known as the brandberg, namibia's highest mountain located in damaraland in the northwest namib desert near the coast. Rising from the desert, this dome-shaped massif can be seen for miles, and viewed from space reveals a perfect circular form. The name brandberg is afrikaans, dutch and german for fire mountain and comes from the effect of the setting sun on the western slope which sometimes causes a vibrant orange glow. Called burning mountain by the indigenous damara people, and mountain of the gods by the herero, the brandberg is considered sacred, a spiritual site of great significance to the san (bushmen) tribes who sheltered there and rendered over 48,000 paintings and engravings within its caves and overhanging rocks.
