New additions to the Crystal Classics family

4 August 2011

We have recently had a few changes to our team here in the Crystal Classics office.

Sadly, Ed has left us, and has returned to University to complete a Masters in Mining Engineering. We wish him all the best with his future career! We had a great farewell party with a 'knees up' at The Wurzels - a famous band from Somerset!

Ed's Last Day
Ed's last day - L to R - Dave Whipp, Ed, Ian, Wayne, Audrey, Robin and Dave Lloyd.

We are pleased to announce that we have two new additions to the team - Steve Rust and Dave Whipp.

Many people may already know Steve Rust - he has had a life long interest in minerals, is a Mindat regular and has published several papers. He has very strong mineral identification skills and is a specialist in rare minerals. Steve has discovered several new minerals, including one named in his honour – Steverustite. Steve has been with Crystal Classics now for a few months, and amongst other duties helps to prepare specimens for updates on the website, and for mineral shows. If you have any questions about the specimens on our website, please contact Steve through our website - by clicking here.
