Cassiterite Pseudomoprh After Orthoclase

ID: CC5082

A pleasing miniature specimen of Cassiterite pseudomorph after Orthoclase, from the classic Cornish location of Wheal Coates. The crystal shows a typical matt brown granular texture. Most of these pseudomorphs came from a small stretch of a vein in the late 1820s. A Cornish classic from Wheal Coates.
