ID: CC948

A Cornish tin collector's specimen of Cassiterite and Wolframite in Chlorite. A fine location specimen from the once very rich tin mine of Great Work, Breage. The 'Tin Stone' has a large amount of dark brown to black vitreous Cassiterite in the specimen with the odd black blade of Wolframite in a dark green Chloritic matrix. The specimen comes with an old label.
