Description
 
Tregurtha Downs Mine, Goldsithney, Cornwall.

A rare locality specimen very rich in cryptocrystalline cassiterite with minor quartz.

Collected by WP Simmonds 'who was the curator at the RGSC' in the very early 1900s from a shaft wall around Tregurtha Shaft.

There is little evidence of mining in the present day as the dumps were removed many years ago, all that exists is the converted engine house that can be seen from the Goldsthiney to Marazon Road.

Size 7.5 X 5 x 5 CM
