A very rich and aesthetic coverage of bright translucent Cassiterite crystals on and in a dark green-grey chloritic veinstone from South Crofty mine at Pool, Redruth, Cornwall, England.  The clove-brown crystals range between 1 and 3 mm and form an almost solid crust on top of the matrix.  All the Cassiterite has a very bright glassy lustre, the local mining term for this ore being ‘Diamond Tin’.  A small double terminated Quartz crystal is perched on top.  A terrific South Crofty Cassiterite.
