Cornish Fluorite & Galena from Douglas Creba

Cornish Fluorite & Galena

A Galena and Fluorite combination with added interest as the Fluorite has partially altered to Chalcedony.






This piece was collected by the late Douglas Creba, a renowned mineralologist who became a Cornish Bard, and his Bardic name was Den an Carrygy - 'Man of the Rocks'.  We are fortunate to know his family and to share with you some of the duplictes of his main collection, which used to reside in the Wheal Martyn Museum.


Fluorite is found in blue, green, yellow, purple and banded. It forms in a cube on a cube mass, which is translated as symbolising structured thinking and the ability to change chaos into order. It relieves tension and is a stone of protection.
