Well formed crystals of Cassiterite abundantly adorn the display face of the specimen from the tin mining area of St. Agnes, Cornwall, England. The lustrous intergrown Cassiterite crystals measure to 0.9cm, with a deep dark brown colour. A small area of creamy white Quartz can be seen to one edge of the specimen. A matrix of brown-grey Tourmaline Hornfels supports the well developed Cassiterite crystals.
