Micro, sub-mm Cassiterite crystals richly pervade a highly vuggy massive Cassiterite matrix, mixed with fine granular and crystalline Quartz.  This specimen is characteristic of the high grade ore once extracted from Geevor mine at Pendeen, St Just, Cornwall, England, whose main development and stopes extended far out under the Atlantic sea bed.  A rich Cassiterite and good example of crystalline ore.
