Goethite from Douglas Creba


A rugged specimen of  Goethite from the collection of a prominant local collector.







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.

Goethite is blackish brown mineral known as a stone for enhancement of soul life. It aids in grounding flights of fantasy to the earth to have the necessary roots to fully flower as a human being. It's properties include releasing grief so aiding avoidance of depression, detachment and self-destructive fires of anger and rage.
