Scheelite and Cassiterite on Quartz
Cabinet, 15.5 x 14.1 x 11.0 cm
Tenkergin Mine, Chukotskii Autonomous Okrug, Far-Eastern Region, Russia
This large display specimen is a very rare example of Russian scheelite from this historic mining locality. As well, it has cassiterite also, on the same piece, all nicely balanced by and hosted on beautiful quartz crystals! The scheelite is just under 3 cm across. An important Russian combination piece, found in the old Herb Obodda dealer stock. Joe Budd Photos.
