I totally agree and I would like to know who the "mindat specialist" is because he could not be more wrong.

Cassiterite, muscovite

Huge complex cassiterite crystals group set on a matrix of bladed muscovite crystals. Despite the large size, the crystals are intact and undamaged, the edges are in perfect shape, no microchipping visible anywhere. Overall size: 100 mm x 95 mm. Cassiterite group: 83 mm wide. Weight: 1128 g.

Mt Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Prefecture, Sichuan Province, China.

A very similar specimen, likely from the same pocket, published in the book "Fine Minerals of China", Guanghua Liu, page 276, and in the German magazine "Lapis", #26/27, year 2004, "China - Das aktuelle Mineralien-Paradies", page 175. Another one very probably from the same pocket too is figured in the inside front cover of The Mineralogical Record, November-December 2011, vol. 42, #6, in an advertisement of Kristalle.

Hübnerite, quartz

Group of several tabular black hübnerite crystals aesthetically set on a spray of diverging Tessin habit quartz crystals. From a pocket (Labor Teo) found at the end of 2009. Overall size: 115 mm x 96 mm. Hübnerite main crystal: 26 mm long x 12 mm wide x 10 mm thick. Weight: 230 g.

From Labor Teo, Mundo Nuevo Mine, Huamachuco, Sanchez Carrion Province, La Libertad Department, Peru.

These photos don't make justice. It's hard to get photos good enough from transparent and colorless crystals in combination with black crystals.

Hübnerite, quartz

Parallel, prismatic, terminated, black hübnerite crystals with colorless quartz. Overall size: 115 mm x 103 mm. Hübnerite longest crystal: 80 mm tall. Main quartz crystal: 115 mm long. Weight: 605 g. No attachment point. It's a floater: all the lower surface is covered by a second generation of quartz.

Huayllapon mine, Pasto Bueno, Pallasca, Ancash, Peru. According to the mineralogist Cosme Pérez-Puig Obieta this specimen may have been extracted from the Chabuca vein in the Huayllapon mine.

The hübnerite in Pasto Bueno District was created [millions of years ago] by precipitation from a hydrothermal solution generated by magmatic processes (Ref.: Book "Minerals", by George W. Robinson, Simon & Schuster, year 1994, page 199, excellent work to anyone interested in the genesis of minerals).

Elbaite, quartz, mica, albite?

Translucent prismatic crystals of elbaite showing two color zones set upon a matrix of lustrous mostly transparent slightly smoky to colorless quartz crystals, with mica and several small tabular colorless crystals that might be albite. Overall size: 65 mm x 57 mm x 50 mm. Main elbaite crystal: 45 mm tall, 13 mm wide. Weight: 135 g. Complete all around. Belonged to Lloyd Tate collection until 2009, who had acquired it in 2000 after being in an old German collection.

Himalaya Mine, Gem Hill, Mesa Grande District, San Diego Co., California, USA.

This deposit has produced tens of thousands of specimens for more than a century, many of them of high quality, although the vast majority, as can be seen at Mindat database, lack a matrix, or at least a decent matrix.
