Cassiterite, Aquamarine and Muscovite
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
8.8 x 4.3 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
Exceptionally lustrous and choice specimen of Cassiterite crystals clustered with light blue Beryl (Aquamarine) and set off by well crystalized Muscovite. Ex Shields Flynn collection, this is an older Mt. Xuebaoding specimen that is unlike any of the later finds and is especially esthetic in person. In excellent condition as seen, the display face is in perfect condition the only damage is on the outside edges where this was removed. The bright glassy luster of the Cassiterites is hard to capture in photos it is really brilliant in person.
