Wolframite, Castle an Dinas Mine, St Columb Major, Cornwall, England

Wolframite contains iron, manganese and tungsten and is the main ore mineral of tungsten. Until the mid 1800s it was treated as a waste product but it later became a high value by product at many tin mines in Cornwall. The Castle an Dinas tungsten mine, in the St Austell Mining District, operated on a limited scale during the First World War and Second World War and production peaked between 1945-1958 when around 3, 000 tons of wolframite was produced
