There must be two dozen fine crystals of scheelite here, of the classic Yaogangxian color (which is hard to describe - a translucent brownish tone). One of the best Yaogangxian scheelites we have seen - really rich and fine! The crystals are on a matrix of muscovite, which has grown on a large ferberite crystal. The scheelites measure to 1.3 cm across. 6.3 x 5.8 x 3 cm
