My two biggest loves ... Salt & archaeology

Luxulyan Luxury. 

Luxullianite is a mineral found only in luxulyan, Cornwall. It’s a gorgeous kind of granite. I used to break in and swim in the abandoned quarry where they mined it. It was used for the tomb of The Duke of Wellington, it’s at St Paul’s.I keep dreaming about making ashtrays from it and really like the idea of turning this rare mineral into a early 20th century style Cut stone ashtray. That’s luxury right?
