A highly lustrous, twinned black cassiterite crystal is perfectly perched on a mound of mica blades. The cassiterite is contacted on the back where it formed against another cassiterite crystal but is al crystal faces from the front. Nice pegmatitic specimen of this tin oxide mineral. Displays perfectly!
