Rocks and Minerals
The mineral collection is over 5,000 specimens, mostly from British localities. It includes a diverse range of minerals and is the largest collection of its type in the county of Surrey. The collection includes common and widespread mineral species such as quartz and its numerous varieties, calcite, gypsum, pyrite, barite fluorite, hematite, feldspars, micas and the garnets. Notable well-crystallised mineral specimens from the British Isles include calcite from the north of England and fluorite from various localities in northern England and Cornwall. Also present are ore samples of the common metals as well as a wider range of more rare minerals. Rare minerals include chalcophyllite, olivenite and pharmacosiderite.
