"The parcel with the Cuprite has just arrived today at home in very good conditions (very good wrapping). The specimen is intact, very lustrous one and well formed."

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!
