St. Justin Paper weights contain a minimum of 10% of Cornish tin from the SS Liverpool, blended with other shipwreck tin and new tin to enhance durability.
The Cornish tin industry began nearly 4000 years ago during the Bronze Age.
Tin was mined by our Celtic ancestors and exported to Europe and the Middle East
where it was used for making weapons and tools. The tin was smelted and cast into
ingots locally. Other gifts include traditional pewter paper knifes and knot seals.
