An extremely rich crystallised Cassiterite from the mining district around Callington to the north-west of the city of Plymouth.  The specimen forms a 1 to 2 cm thick, irregular-shaped plate of mixed Cassiterite and massive Quartz, the percentage of the former way exceeding the latter.  Cassiterite pervades the matrix and, over its top surface and one edge, forms well developed equant crystals that vary between opaque black with a bright metallic lustre and translucent clove-brown.
