Scheelite With Lollingite, Quartz
Cabinet, 10.5 x 8.7 x 5.8 cm
Huanggangliang mine, Keshiketeng Qi, Chifeng city, Inner Mongolia, China
This interesting combination piece was found in the summer of 2012, and has a sharp 6.5-cm-long scheelite perched on quartz and other scheelites. A nice doubly-terminated quartz crystal flanks the main scheelite. The symmetry of the scheelite, if not its color, makes it very dramatic and 3-dimensional. I saw many examples from this pocket and selected only a few in very good condition, which to me showed appealing geometry and/or association. Fluorescent slightly differently, under LW and SW UV light.
