A fine cabinet specimen of lustrous, brown, pyramidal scheelite crystals to 3 mm richly sprinkled on all sides of a glassy and lustrous, doubly terminated smoky quartz crystal. This old-time specimen is from historic Zinnwald, on the Czech side of the fabled Erzgebirge. This piece is nearly pristine. The scheelites have the typical, super-white fluorescence of scheelite.
