Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 4.4 x 3.3 cm
Mt Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Prefecture, Sichuan Province, China
This well-balanced small cabinet is from a small find on the "other side of the mountain" from the former main adits to the Ping Wu mines, on Mt Xuebaoding in the Panda Preserve of Sichuan Province. The crystals are distinctly distorted into fat triangular shapes more slim in one dimension, than equant and octahedral as we normally expect in scheelite. These crystals are to 2 cm in size, and are incredibly gemmy in the terminations.
