ID: CC20235
This beautifully aesthetic cluster of superb Cassiterite crystals will make a real show-stopper for many good collections.  The ex-matrix, intergrown large Cassiterite crystals measure up to 3 cm across, with one main twinned crystal taking centre stage.  Most crystal faces are mirror-smooth, but some display striations normal to their twinning axis.  The Cassiterite is mainly coal-black and opaque, but near-surface features show internal planes of translucent burnt orange.  Hidden beneath the base are Quartz grains of medium to coarse grain size (Wentworth scale) cemented by a yellowish fine grained mineral, probably Muscovite.  A choice Cassiterite from Horní Slavkov.
