I forgot. Sorry!

The human visible spectrum includes wavelengths from about 390 nm to 700 nm. We cannot see light from below and above such range (which would be UV and IR light respectively). Other animal species can see slightly different wavelengths. But the range that the cameras see must be even more different. Not to mention the big difference of resolutions. So it's no surprise that the photos we get don't match the images we directly see.

As usual, a splendid specimen and a great photo - I guess cassiterite is not easy to photograph. But what are the green/blue areas on the matrix, a copper mineral?

Thank you, Tobi.

Regarding the blue areas, I don't know what they are, but I consider them as negligible. Probably something like Blu-Tack from the previous owner. I'll try to clean them.
