The steamer SS Liverpool was carrying tin ingots from Cornwall and sank in 1863 after colliding with the barque Laplata, which had just left Liverpool on its way to Lima, Peru. The wreck lies just off the north coast of Anglesey and between Middle Mouse Island and the coast.
The abhurite formed on the tin ingots as a result of the reaction of sea water.
