Small Cabinet, 7.4 x 4.9 x 4.3 cm
Mt Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Prefecture, Sichuan Province, China
Overall like a stalactite, this vertical cluster features crystals perched one atop another. The crystal atop has an interesting crystallized cavity where the crystal grew around something now dissolved away. This cluster of lustrous and translucent, pseudo-octahedral, orange-colored scheelite crystals is quite dramatic. It is a beautiful piece with an unusual, sculptural, arrangement to it. Scheelites from this locality are arguably from the world's top locality for the species. The largest crystal measures 4 cm across. Ex. Dr. Ed David Collection #131F.
