Where Is It From? Cassiterite Meaning

This stone is a type of tin oxide, and the most common colors found are black, brown and red-brown stones. It can also be colorless, white, yellow-grey, yellow and red. 

This crystal is also known as tinstone, and the meaning of the name Cassiterite comes from the Greek word meaning 'tin'.


It is found in the United Kingdom, China, Malaysia, Australia, Namibia, Brazil, Bolivia, Mexico and the United States, so it is quite widespread.

These crystals are reasonably common, but they don't look spectacular or attractive to the eye, as they are quite small and unassuming.

Their configuration is prismatic or even pyramid shaped and this stone also occurs in the massive form.

Why Would You Use It? Spiritual Meaning

This stone has powerful Spiritual meanings as it makes a strong connection with what is called the deep source, the doorway that links you to the other side.

So you may imagine that its vibration is anything but ordinary. At the same time it also is said to give you protection physically from danger. 

This is the place where each of us passes at birth and death, the level of beginnings and endings, life and death. 

These crystals are said to assist the dying, helping you to let go of all the issues that may be holding your spirit on the earth plane, to aid the soul to move from the body to the light.

  • This crystal has a strong spiritual grounding energy.
  • It makes a deep connection through the base or root chakra to the depths of the earth and Mother Gaia.

The specific energy that you can make a connection with by using Cassiterite, is there at the time of your birth.

This is when your spirit enters this world and also when it is time to pass through the doorway and go to the other side again.


It will help you when you feel the need to clear out unnecessary stuff energetically, spiritual debris that seems to accumulate because you've taken no action to let go of it.

This can be done by anyone, if you feel the call for deep change.

  • It may be a helpful stone to have nearby newly born children to help to ground them into this life.
