ID: CC21544
Cassiterite from St. Michael's Mount at Marazion near Penzance is almost always distinctive as from this picturesque locality and this miniature certainly has this quality.  Four highly lustrous metallic black Cassiterite crystals nestle in a bed of crystallised Zinnwaldite mica together with several terminated Quartz crystals.  A splendid small miniature complete with a Sir Arthur Russell label, although not with his name written on.
