Scheelite on Muscovite
Mt. Xuebaoding, near Ping Wu, Sichuan Province, China
Small Cabinet, 6.9 x 5.0 x 4.3 cm
This plate has deep orange-colored scheelites, to 2.5 cm on edge, nicely perched atop a well-trimmed matrix! The color is unusually rich and deep, and the luster is good. A good, rich plate for the price from the same pocket as produced the other unusually dark-orange crystals shown above
