Scheelite, Muscovite
Mt Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Prefecture, Sichuan Province, China
Small Cabinet, 5.5 x 5.1 x 3.7 cm
Two pristine, highly lustrous scheelite crystals to 2.5 cm are jauntily perched atop matrix covered with pearlescent muscovite blades on this aesthetic specimen from recent finds at Mt. Xuebaoding, China. The termination and facial area of one side of the large, golden-yellow scheelite octahedron are particularly gemmy.
