Description

All of our Minerals & Crystals are 100% Genuine Specimens & come with a Certificate of Authenticity

Stannite is a mineral, a sulfide of copper, iron, and tin. It is found in tin-bearing, hydrothermal vein deposits occurring with chalcopyrite, sphalerite, tetrahedrite, arsenopyrite, pyrite, cassiterite, and wolframite. It is also known as bell metal ore as tin is an important constituent of bell-metal. It is thought the exploitation of tin deposits in Cornwall led to an expansion in bell founding. The name comes from the Latin for tin: stannum. It was first described in 1797 for an occurrence in Wheal Rock, St. Agnes, Cornwall, England.

From Cligga Head, Perranport, Cornwall
