Cornish Mineral Specimens
Cornwall is famous for its mineral and mining heritage. With the closure of mines and the subsequent weathering of spoil heaps, Cornish mineral specimens are less easily found and new exploration is difficult and sometimes dangerous. This has increased the value of specimens from particular localities and of many rare minerals. Many specimens on the market are from old mineral collections. We sell minerals that we have collected in Cornwall, from both above and below ground. We collect with conservation in mind, so most of our specimens are from loose material.
