This is an excellent multiple-species specimen. The left side of the specimen is a solid mass of cassiterite crystals. Crystals reach 1.1" (2.8cm) in length. The right side of the specimen is a mass of muscovite crystals. These crystals reach 0.4" (1.0cm) in length. Finally, growing on and amongst the mica crystals are several superb aquamarine crystals to 0.5" (1.3cm). The aquamarine crystals are odd in that the prism faces did not develop. These crystals are a combination of termination faces; they appear similar to a brilliant-cut faceted stone! All of this rests upon a base of muscovite mica. This is an extremely striking specimen.
