Best Answer

Tin dioxide, also known as cassiterite.

I believe that it is tin oxide. Cassiterite appears to be a dioxide of tin

The answer to this question is Tin (IV) Oxide since it is an Ionic not covalant. Tin dioxide says that it starts with a gas, but tin is a metal. So we need to worry about charges.
