Cronstedtite, a complex iron silicate, is one of the classic minerals associated with Wheal Jane at Baldhu, between Redruth and the city of Truro in Cornwall.  The Cronstedtite forms triangular crystals, 1 to 2 mm across, jet-black with a bright reflective lustre and richly covering a 5 x 1.5 cm surface of grey Killas matrix.  Tiny deep tan Siderite crystals forming botryoidal mounds are also present.  A fine and rich example of Cronstedtite from Wheal Jane.
