This August 2017 update adds over one hundred new specimens to Steetley Minerals from around the world but with the emphasis on the United Kingdom. Many of these are drawn from three collections acquired by us, a few from my own collection and recently collected material from the Pennines.

David Melville was a well known collector originally living in Cornwall and later in the North of England. His special interest was cassiterite specimens so much that in the 1970s he took a job as a miner at Geevor in Cornwall. He had a fine eye for aesthetics, his collection containing many beautiful pieces from around the world. He collected in the mines and quarries of the North of England and put together a particularly fine Coldstones collection.

Additionally, we have included a few specimens from the recently acquired Jim Knight and the Peter Harrison collections.  Jim lived in Lancashire and had an extensive and important collection of British and rare worldwide minerals a review of which will be published later this year. Peter is from the Midlands and had an extensive collection of British and rare mineral species.

We hope you enjoy exploring the website and that you find something of interest.  Payment can be made through PayPal’s in British Pounds, US Dollars, Euros or Japanese Yen. Just click the relevant currency on the dropdown list on the home page.
