Thanks Peter

I wasn't trying to delist a locality only trying to indicate that there is great difficulty pinpointing where these Cassiterites are from. I have reworded my comments to try and give a better picture. Thanks for the input, Hope that helps.

I have added most of these localities, but I note we have no photos or info for several.

yunnanmineral,

Those are amazing cassiterite crystals and we would like to have them to put in the article if you would upload them officially to the mindat gallery. Can you do that? What can you tell us about the locality? Is it a tin mine? What are the associated minerals? How many of the long transparent crystals were found?

Hi Rock and Ralph,

Nice transparent crystals indeed.

Two other great localities are Maniema in Congo and La Villeder in France.
I will upload some pics and the follwing days.

Take care and best regards.

Paul.

Rock Currier:
Please give me mindat gallery of IP, my English is very bad, such minerals produced in China's Yunnan province, type of mineral is transparent there is no problem with cassiterite, (I am a Geological Engineer), first discovered in 1995, about output of hundreds of pieces of such high-grade specimens, described as producing Ximeng County, Yunnan Province, showed industrial production because of the exploitation of mineral specimens close to depletion, such subscript cassiterite quartz veins are mainly rock, mica quartzite, mudstone fault; mainly associated minerals: crystal, pyrite, limonite films.

Matteo, Nice micro photographs, but I don't think they are unusual enough to be included in the Best Minerals Cassiterite article when so many localities produce bigger and better specimens. Why do you think they should be included?

I am happy to put this in if you consider it an important occurrence with good specimens in many collections. I started this article for Australian cassiterites then expanded it to international sites. As a result some of the Australian sites may be not up to the international standard, or perhaps we should add more international locations? I am open to suggestions?

Regards,
Ralph

Hi Rock
Its always hard to know where to draw a line - Elba cassiterites could be the holy grail to some collectors?

Yes, its hard to draw the line, but if the request is reasonable and the images are not too bad and especially if the guy will cough up good information abut the locality I usually put them in.
