Small Cabinet, 7.1 x 5.1 x 3.9 cm
Beryl-Scheelite deposit, Huya village, Mt Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Prefecture, Sichuan Province, China
This is a really gorgeous scheelite with unusual red-orange color: unusual in that the red bit of the hue is very pronounced compared to normal "orange" scheelites from the locality. The crystals, to about an inch, have the best glassy luster and rich color you could ask for. It is a stunning piece that refelects light every which way and just "glows" on a shelf! I cannot say that, amongst hundreds of scheelites, I have ever seen one quite like this. 7.1 x 5.1 x 3.9 cm
