A couple of weeks ago when we were in Germany we bought a small collection of Congo minerals from a sale in Lostwithiel in Cornwall - quite cosmopolitan!

The pieces belonged to a guy who worked in the Lubambashi mines in the 1960s. According to the accompanying information he returned to the UK in 1966, and this was backed up by dates on the newspaper wrapping etc.

Here is the collection, as I said it was small and seems to feature a lot of ore samples (some quite rare) from the Kipushi mine.
