Description

This is an interesting australian old timer: A Tin ore specimen obviously from alluvials, featuring lustrous black and reddish grains of cassiterite cemented quite loosely to some kind of river pebble.

An interesting geological sample which comes with a beautiful and large (12.5 x 6.5 cm) antique label. The label means: "Kassiterit - Chem. Zus: Zinnoxid - Formel: SnO2 - Fundort: Flagystone Creek - Waschzinn - Neu Süd Wales"
(Cassiterite - Chemical composition: stannic oxide - Formula SnO2 - Location: Flagystone Creek - wash tin - New South Wales).

The location "Flagystone Creek" is somehow obscure - a location with this name does not exist, but there is a Flagstone Creek in Buller Co., NSW. In Buller Co., there are lots of prospects and mines to be found, also cassiterite is described.
