This interesting combination piece was found in the summer of 2012, and has a "drape" of sharp metallic lollingite crystals covering the white scheelite. Mixed in with that drapery of lollingite are sharp, disc-shaped crystals of manganoan calcite that fluoresce orange-red in contrast to the white fluorescence of the scheelite. I saw many examples from this pocket and selected only a few in very good condition, whoch to me showed appealing geometry and/or association.
