Scheelite, Quartz
Small Cabinet, 5.6 x 3.7 x 2.5 cm
Cinovec / Zinnwald (Cinvald), Erzgebirge; Krusne Hory Mts, Saxony & Usti Region (Bohemia; Bohmen; Boehmen), Germany & Czech Republic
A very rich and fine specimen of lustrous, brown, pyramidal scheelite crystals to 3 mm covering a thin plate of quartz and a euhedral quartz crystal. This excellent, old-time piece is from historic Zinnwald, on the Czech side of the fabled Erzgebirge. This classic piece is essentially pristine and has the typical, bright white fluorescence of scheelite.
