ID: CC12692
A great example of well crystallised Cassiterite forming gemmy crystals along a cavity in a massive Cassiterite-Killas veinstone from Cornwall, England.  Although the exact mine is unknown, Wheal Clarence at Porthtowan, St. Agnes is considered a likely candidate.  The Cassiterite crystals grow to about 4 mm and are a transparent clove-brown interspersed with equant colourless Quartz crystals.
