CASSITERITE, Zinnwald, Bohemia, now Cinvald, Czech Republic.
CASSITERITE, a superb, extremely rare group of three twinned-crystals or a sixling.
Zinnwald, Bohemia, now Cinvald, Czech Republic.
Measures 1-3/8x1-3/8x1 inches. An exceptional. old-time group of “gun-sight” crystals with no matrix. The locality is now called Cinvald, Czech Republic. I have never seen a finer example. This specimen came to me first around 1960. I sold it at that time to Alex Mann from whom I reacquired it on March 10, 2003.

 

Price on request.
