About Us

Welcome to Surrey Minerals!

As a teenager I was fascinated by Geology and particularly in mineralogy. One of my first jobs was working in a little shop in Wimbledon that sold jewellery and mineral specimens. It was a time when the first Dioptase was coming out of Tsumeb, and if only my salary could have stretched to buying it then.......!

Some years ago, my interest was rekindled by a chance visit to a rock shop in Swanage, Dorset. I started to rebuild my collection.

Since then, visits to shows, a chance meeting with a retiring dealer and a change in job circumstances led me to starting up Surrey Minerals.

I am not interested in buying 'flats' from wholesalers, so all the specimens I list here will be hand-picked as being that little bit special, in my opinion.

If you have any special requests for items not listed here, please let me know and I will try to locate something suitable for you.

If you have any comments regarding the site in general, I will be interested to hear them, favourable or otherwise.

Please enjoy browsing the catalogue, and hopefully you will be tempted into making a purchase or two!

Happy collecting

Mark

PS. Yes, Surrey Minerals is no longer located in Surrey, now in 'sunny' Devon!
