Cassiterite: Mineral information, data and localities.

The mineral name is derived from the term “Cassiterides” which was applied 'islands off the western coast of Europe' in pre-Roman times (the exact location of these 'islands' has been hotly debated over the years, current thought is that the source was probably mainland Spain and that even 2000 years ago, traders had a habit of providing misleading locality information to protect

Cassiterite mineral information and data

Cassiterite is a common and widespread mineral and is the main ore of tin. It forms in mid- to high-temperature hydrothermal veins through granite, granite pegmatites, and rhyolite, can occasionally be found in contact metamorphic deposits, and can also occur in large alluvial placer deposits. Important Cassiterite localities include in Germany ...

Cassiterite: The tin mineral cassiterite information and ...

Cassiterite is the best-known tin mineral. It has been used as the chief ore of tin from early history throughout the ages, and remains so even today. Some of the economical Cassiterite deposits exist in placer stream deposits where this very heavy mineral collects as rounded waterworn pebbles. The name Cassiterite is derived from the Greek "kassiteros", meaning tin.

Cassiterite Facts - Softschools

A tin oxide mineral found in vein deposits, granitic rocks, pegmatites, areas of contact metamorphism and the altered zone of ore deposits is cassiterite. It is also given the name "stream tin" because it is also found in placer deposits where it is most widely mined ore of tin. Cassiterite is sometimes referred to as tinstone, and is the best-known tin mineral, and is an
