Libethenite from Douglas Creba


A low grade specimen of Libethenite.  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.










Named after the location in Romania where it is found, Libethenite is a dark green, secondary mineral formed where copper ore deposits have oxidised.  It is attributed with the property of releasing imposed restriction and dogma to enhance self-confidence and personal freedom.
