I'm primarily a micromount collector, though I have a few hundred larger specimens of various kinds. My collection is dominated by minerals from four areas - southern Africa (RSA, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zaire), the south-western US, Europe, and the Cornwall/Devon region of the UK.

I'm especially interested in minerals with 'exotic' chemistry, and have spent many years studying uranium secondary minerals, tellurates, and oxychlorides amongst others.

I've done a lot of collecting and research work in the Mendip Hills over the past forty years, and have the honour of having a mineral from Merehead Quarry named after me. Most of the papers on the Mendips that I have authored / co-authored can be found online at www.imbuia-holdings.com/papers/ if you have an interest.

I do exchange material with collectors around the world, so feel free to contact me.
