Stokesite is an uncommon hydrated, calcium, tin bearing silicate, usually quite ugly in nature. The world's best crystals came out in the late 1990s from a few small finds, from which this came. At the time, this was considered one of the finer miniatures of the find for its completeness, quality, and double-ball appearance that made it such a nice display-quality miniature for geometry and form as well as for species. Ex. Steve Neely collection (he collected miniatures for a few years in the late 1990s/early 2000s after selling his first collection, and before going back to cabinet pieces for a third collection after selling this miniatures suite). Outstanding for species and display, it is an exceptional display-worthy rarity.
