Cassiterite on Albite
Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 6.0 x 4.6 cm
Linopolis, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Twinned, highly lustrous, black crystals of cassiterite to 2.6 cm in length are emplaced on color contrasting, sparkling, white albite. A superb old time locality piece, showcasing lustrous cassiterite from a pegmatite deposit - quite rare in nature! Although some smaller cassiterites are damaged or broken, the main cluster is intact, and it is displayed against the stark sparkling white matrix to good effect.
