Description

An aggregate of cassiterite from a highly unusual nation and locality worldwide for minerals. This is an excellent cassiterite floater with a pleasing patina and absolutely damage free. I have no indication when it was found but this one comes from an old Belgian collection which was gathered about 30 years ago. Very unusual and rare!
