COLLECTION OF TWELVE MINERALS FROM THE FORMER MINE DUMPS OF WHEAL GORLAND

Wheal Gorland, St. Day, Cornwall

For mineral collectors, Wheal Gorland is probably the most famous of all the Cornish mines, producing over 60 different mineral species. Gorland was a copper mine working at various times from 1792 to 1909.

Most of the minerals found have been collected from the mine dumps which are now a Site of Special scientific Interest. The dumps are unrivalled in the world for the variety and quality of secondary lead and copper minerals they have produced.

This collection from the Wheal Gorland dumps was put together by a collector in the 1970s and is contained in a 12 compartment card box with a clear plastic lid.  
  
It consists of small samples of the following minerals:  
  
cassiterite, olivenite, liroconite, cuprite, scorodite, clinoclase, pharmacosiderite, ceruleite, chenevixite, native copper, azurite and wolfram.
