Mid Cornwall Minerals
 Mid Cornwall Minerals          

Welcome to  Mid Cornwall Minerals.

This web site is designed to not only highlight my interest in the diverse mineral assemblage of mid cornwall but as a platform to advertise my surplus  Cornish Minerals from unusual locations at  attractive prices.

It seems that within the blink of an eye, sites that were once open and producing some stunning specimens have been obliterated beyond all recognition with new housing estates being built on them at an alarming rate.

Our services page  shows some of the engineering items we produce

 including the Cornwall Rock Trimmer which is proving popular with many local clubs and individual collectors.

 

  

 

As the name implies " Blowing House" our home was once the site of  a medieval tin smelting house. Pictures of some of the stone moulds and tools we have excavated are shown for your interest.

 

My tin smelting page explains a little of the methods I use to reclaim, process and eventually smelt some of the cassiterite that has been left on the property by the old men.

 

Our Tin Smelting DVD which is for sale on our tin smelting page shows the method we use to recover and smelt cornish cassiterite and how we produce our tin ingots in true redneck fashion.

 

The unique tin ingots produced are occasionally for sale and can be found in the mineral sales page.

Covid 19.

We are still taking orders and reserving items for customers without asking for any deposits or payments but are avoiding posting for a couple of weeks.

We will invoice the week before we intend to dispatch.

Items reserved will be shown on my site with customer initials.

Lock down has not effected our working practices, we have always worked from home and are filling the time with sorting some superb surplus Cornish specimens and building a new stock of polished cornish slices and sections.

I thank you for your patience in this surreal time and please stay safe.

Regards Peter.
