X9W-YUQCassiterite : SnO2, Torbernite : Cu(UO2)2(PO4)2·12H2O

Multiple photos available
Royal George Mine, Avoca-Royal George district, Northern Midlands municipality, Tasmania, Australia

Cassiterite and occasional Torbernite, filling a 3-5mm-wide joint in quartz greisen. Specimen size 12.8 x 10cm. Self-collected in 1966. Bob Beattie specimen & photo.
