A major showpiece Chinese combo specimen, combining a big, fine scheelite crystal with fine tabular aquamarines! This specimen has a LUSTROUS, SHARP, UNDAMAGED orange scheelite crystal nestled amongst the bladed muscovite crystals. On the other end of the specimen is a group of gemmy, tabular aquamarines, to 4 cm across(!). Only one of the crystals has a contact on the back side where the specimen was against the matrix rock (the bottom was sawn flat to remove the specimen from the host rock) .The aquas have attractive "pebbly" faces and window-clear edges into the gemmy interiors. 17.7 x 11.0 x 6.7 cm
