History of Cornish Diamond Tin Collection Gifts
These tin gifts are made in Cornwall, south western county of England. Cornwall with its bold and rocky coastline is a county full of prehistoric remains and many ruined castles.
The tin industry in Cornwall dates back to the Bronze Age. Cassiterite, the mineral ore of tin was often found in large lustrous black crystals which the miners named 'Diamond Tin'.
The tin used in these gifts comes from a cargo of cornish tin ingots on board a ship that sank in 1863. 138 years later the tin ingots were raised from the shipwreck. They have been carefully cleaned and used to make this collection of tin gifts.
