It's been a while since I've been able to output and an article instead of inputting research! Here is the first of a few histories I have in the works from my research British trip.

John Mawe lead an action-packed life that included adventuring to different parts of the world hunting for minerals, running a mineral shop in Regency-era London, and helping to pioneer the amateur lapidary trend that would become a favorite Victorian past time. His life and works have been somewhat forgotten but he's remembered here for all to celebrate.
