PQG-WG4Cassiterite, Fluorite (Var: Stink-Fluss), Zinnwaldite

Multiple photos available
Cínovec / Zinnwald, Erzgebirge / Krusné Hory Mts, Germany & Czech Republic

Dimensions: 5 cm x 4 cm x 3 cm

The very dark purple fluorite (antozonite) is hard to distinguish from cassiterite at this scale. The bright orange colour is due to a druzy coating of stolzite.
