Cassiterite on Bismuthinite

$900.00   €848  £730.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC4915
A richly adorned, large miniature of acicular metallic grey Bismuthinite crystals lining numerous cavities in a mixed Chalcopyrite and Quartz matrix. Adding interest to the specimen are later depositions of balls and botryoidal zoned brown Cassiterite of the variety Wood Tin together with very dark green Chlorite developed over the Bismuthinite crystals. This is a fine specimen from the Fowey Consols mine at Tywardreath, Cornwall and a rare and most attractive combination. It is accompanied by two labels, one from a private collector and one a Roughgems (Charterhouse Street, London) stock label.
