Scheelite, Quartz
Miniature, 5.0 x 3.5 x 2.8 cm
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou Prefecture, Hunan Province, China
For the Yaogangxian, this is a HUGE scheelite crystal! And, it is very sharp, and complete all around (the clean contact is on the back). This is the characteristic color for Yaogangxian scheelites NOT to be confused with the much mor ecommon and orange-colored Ping Wu scheelites from Sichuan. For THIS locality, and for Hunan Province, this is a MAJOR crystal of some import and stands far above most others from the locale. The 3-dimensional crystal has wrapped itself around some quartz, and there are some smaller intergrown scheelites as well. 5 x 3.5 x 2.8 cm
