Cassiterite With 'Rhodonite'

$320.00   €272  £240.00 approx.  

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

ID: CC5137

An unusual combination specimen from one of the Bolivia tin mining areas. The specimen is rich in crystals of Cassiterite on a black-grey Mn oxide matrix. The intriguing part of the specimen are the elongated 'triclinic' crystals of possible reddish Rhodonite, mostly coated by black Mn oxides, with needle Quartz crystals on the underside of the specimen. Frustratingly we have no further provenance on the specimen for such an out of the box combination.
