Summary: Stokesite was found in a lithium-bearing pegmatite at Ctidružice near Moravské Budějovice in Western Moravia (Czechoslovakia) in a close association with cryptocrystalline cassiterite. The type of its occurrence is described and its X-ray powder diffraction data given. This represents only the second occurrence of this very rare hydrous silicate of tin and calcium.
