This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC2646

A choice specimen of lustrous twinned crystals of Cassiterite to 3.5cm wide. The crystals have bright and highly detailed prism faces, and are intergrown to aesthetically perch on a matrix of intricate silvery translucent 'books' of Muscovite Mica. Little has come from this mine since the May 2008 earthquake which severly effected operations. Free from contact damage, this specimen is an excellent display example.
