Wow!  A delightful and quite different combination of lustrous black Cassiterite crystals alongside tiny, gemmy lilac Fluorite, both sitting on glassy-light grey prism faces of horizontal Quartz crystals.  From Krupka (Graupen) in the Krušné Hory Mountains of the Czech Republic, the Cassiterite forms complex crystals to 1.5 cm and contrasts wonderfully with the rich scattering of micro-cubic Fluorite crystals with a texture of pale lilac sugar.  An eye-catching specimen at a most reasonable price.
