- Great Wheal Fortune, Breage, Cornwall, England
- 9 x 6 x 4.5 cm - Sm Cabinet
Open vug filled with milky Quartz crystals and 1-3mm dark brown, lustrous, and well-formed Cassiterite crystals. Very nice specimen from one of the planet's greatest tin mining regions. The Great Wheal Fortune was worked for tin from 1855 to 1890. This specimen was actually collected on the mine dumps in 1997. It's hard to obtain good Cassiterite specimens from Cornwall.
