Cassiterite

ID: CC5148

A classic example of a rare geological occurrence from Relistian Mine in Cornwall. Tremendous forces during deposition of this unique deposit caused the formation of the famous pebble breccia that made up a large part of the Relistian Lode. The rounded pebbles of killas are cemented by massive and crystallised Cassiterite, Quartz and later Chalcopyrite this is clearly seen in this specimen. Cassiterite crystals have formed in several cavities as well......a great example!!
