- Scheelite on Muscovite
- Large Cabinet, 16.0 x 14.0 x 10.0 cm
- Ping Wu, Sichuan Province, China
This is a dramatic specimen featuring a very well-exposed scheelite crystal perched upon wings of thick muscovite blades, on muscovite matrix. The contrast is good, and the size is impressive. The sharp, well-centered scheelite crystal is very equant and balanced at 6.5 x 6 x 6 cm in size. The color of the scheelite is a very clean orange hue, not too brown and not unusually red as some more recent finds (this came out in the mid-2000s). We nicknamed this piece "the heart" for obvious reasons! Joe Budd photos .
