Description

Cornwall is extraordinarily rich in minerals. This guide includes a general introduction to the geology of the county, and describes the formation of minerals discussed in the book. It looks at different regions of Cornwall, and examples of rocks and minerals that can be found there today, as well those discovered in the past. This is followed by a gallery of beautifully crystallised examples of Cornish minerals revealed during the county's historical mining activity, and a glossary of terms and references.

Author Biography

As a child in Cornwall, Simon Camm came across a man-made grotto lined with mineral crystals. He was captivated by their diverse colours and forms, and this fascination never left him. He became a professional geologist, working in Cornwall and later, as a consultant on base and precious metals as well as diamonds, in Europe, Asia, the Far East and Africa. He then spent several years as Honorary Research Fellow of the Camborne School of Mines, University of Exeter, and Visiting Fellow in Mining Geology, University of Greenwich. He is a Fellow of the Geological Society of London, author of 'Gold in the Counties of Cornwall and Devon', and author, or co-author, of numerous scientific papers.
