Scheelite, Dolomite, Quartz
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou Prefecture, Hunan Province, China
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 6.1 x 5.2 cm
One side of a glassy and gemmy, colorless quartz crystal measuring 5.7 cm in length is coated with drusy, lustrous, white dolomite, which, in turn, hosts numerous, lustrous and translucent, orange colored crystals of scheelite. The other side of the quartz is gemmy, clean, and bright. A superb specimen from this new pocket! Photos simply cannot convey the combination of sparkle and luster here.
