A great specimen of Cassiterite Crystal. This is an oresome crystal with outstanding luster and geometric form. There is no matrix to speak of. It is difficult to track down good Cassiterite crystals, as a collector they are one of the hardest metals to find in a collectable state. This specimen is mounted on a perspex base to go straight into the cabinet. A great find!
