Royal Cornwall Museum Photo Prints and Wall Art

Cassiterite, Ulu Johan, Ipoh, Kinta district, Southern Perak, Malaysia

This large specimen of water worn cassiterite was brought to Cornwall from Malaysia by Redruth businessman James Wickett in 1910. In Cornwall, cassiterite is concentrated in hydrothermal veins and pegmatites associated with granite intrusions. Cassiterite is the primary ore of tin, the most significant metal mined in Cornwall. In the late 1920s, cheaper tin from Malaysia undercut the price of Cornish tin, contributing to the industrys decline, and causing many miners to emigrate in search of work. Wickett Collection
