A light covering of snow. Makes a change from rain!
Engine House and Chimney
Old Engine House
A view from the Count House.
Everything from a Woodcock to a Siskin.
Filled the feeders 3 times today.
A nice specimen picked off the dump today. Washed off by the rain and sparkling in the sunshine.
Crystalline bournonite with quartz pseudomorphs after baryte.
Back to our favourite mine yesterday.
Wall, dig and backfill is the order of the day.
This is number 3 hole, it flatters to deceive lots of gossany quartz and white granite perfect lode material but very little sulphide mineralisation.
The search continues.
I am interested in buying whole collections or single mineral specimens from Cornwall and Devon for my personal collection.
I can also appraise collections and help with any identification questions you may have.

First snow for 8 years.
It will be gone before coffee time!
