Natanite is a very rare tin oxide
Ilvaite is an uncommon mineral with well formed crystals, as here, being rare. A fine specimen of ilvaite can be a valuable addition to anyone's collection.
Often the Mexican Ilvaites are identified as manganite but recent re-analysis has determined that they are ilvaite.
All Mineral Specimens come with a label with the name of the mineral and where it was mined
