Item number: 19962

A super-sharp, highly lustrous andorite crystal is exposed in an opening in this mostly cassiterite matrix. The andorite is nicely terminated. The cassiterite matrix is interesting in that it is sort of "honey-combed" and composed of thousands of tiny, almost acicular cassiterite crystals with a few tiny pyrite crystals. Very nice andorite specimen!
