The Ian Acworth Cornish Collection
9 October 2008
Crystal Classics and Kristalle are pleased to be presenting the Ian Acworth Cornwall and Devon collection, acquired in mid 2008.
Pyromorphite - Wheal Alfred, Cornwall Cuprite - Wheal Phoenix, Cornwall
Ian Acworth's collection is one of the finest accumulations of Cornish specimens in the world. Ian has lovingly put together the collection over more than 20 years, and the collection encompasses a full range of mineral species found at the different locations around Cornwall and Devon. This also means that the collection includes specimens that have not been seen on the market for many years, from these long since closed mines.
Fluorite - Carn Brea, Cornwall Fluorite - Trolvis Quarry, Cornwall
We will be premiering many of these Cornish and Devon specimens at the Bakewell 'Rock Exchange' in Derbyshire, England on 11-12 Oct 2008. We have also prepared a batch to post on this website, which will go live in about a month, after the series of updates from the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences Collection, Pennsylvania.
Chalcocite - Levant Mine, Cornwall Pyromorphite - Pool Mine, Cornwall
