Tin (Sn) is a relatively soft and ductile metal with a silvery white colour. It has a density of 7.29 grams per cubic centimetre, a low melting point of 231.88 °C (449.38 °F), and a high boiling point of 2,625 °C (4,757 °F). Tin is allotropic; that is, it takes on more than one form. The normal form is white tin, or beta tin, which has a body-centred tetragonal crystal structure. The second allotrope, gray or alpha tin, has a face-centred cubic structure. Gray tin is theoretically stable below 13 °C (55 °F), but in practice it is readily formed only at about −40 °C (−40 °F). This transformation is difficult to initiate and is severely retarded by the presence of alloying elements or trace impurities. Nonetheless, it has given rise to the extremely rare laboratory curiosity known as tin pest.
Types of Tin Ores
Cassiterite (SnO2): This is the most common tin oxide mineral in Nigeria. It is generally opaque, but it is translucent in thin crystals. Its luster and multiple crystal faces produce a desirable gem.
