Norman Cogger Collection

  • d.2017
United Kingdom

Norman Cogger

Norman lived in Tonbridge, Kent and was a member of the Russell Society for many years. Following his passing away in January 2017, and in line with his wishes, his mineral collection was sold to raise funds for his chosen good cause, the Kent and Sussex Hospital League of Friends.

Norman’s collection contains a wide range of foreign and British species, with an emphasis on the chemistry of minerals rather than aesthetics.

By profession, Norman was a geochemist and used "wet chemistry" to analyse and understand certain pieces in the collection.

The collection is well curated, with specimens in a clean condition and supported by labels, a card index system and catalogues.
