Gerdus Brönn     

Gerdus and Annalie Brönn iare the owners of the Silver Hills mineral shop in Hartbeespoort, South Africa, specializing in fine mineral specimens from Madagascar, Tsumeb, and the Kalahari Manganese Field. The business had been started by John Hepker in 1972, at the site of the Silver Hills mine, and the Brönns purchased the business from him in 1994. The shop was struck by lightning and burned to the ground in 2000, but fortunately many of their minerals were in storage elsewhere at the time. They decided to relocate to a historic 1945 building in Hartbeespoort, and purchased the extensive mineral collection of Francois McCray. The Silver Hills shop reopened on April 1, 2001, and now also has a website,
