A superb miniature of highly lustrous micro-crystals of Cassiterite densely pervading a micro-stockwork of finely acicular Schorl tourmaline crystals of the identical clove-brown colour to that of the Cassiterite.  The binary combination of Cassiterite-Schorl is a fascinating aspect of ore emplacement in Bunny mine at Stenalees in the St. Austell District mining/China clay district of Cornwall, England.  An exceedingly rich and uncommon specimen.
