Lovely black Cassiterite, sometimes also known as Tinstone, or Tin Stone, is a primary tim oxide that has formed in Quartz. The orange colour, more prevalent in some stones than in others is natural Iron or Hematite staining. Because of its rarity, Cassiterite is known as a collector’s stone.
It istypically found in high-temperature hydrothermal veins and in granite. In the 18th and much of the 19th centuries, the very large vein deposits of Cornwall were the major source of tin. Today most of the world’s cassiterite is mined in Malaysia, Indonesia, Bolivia, Thailand, Nigeria, Myanmar (Burma), and parts of China; other countries produce smaller amounts.
