Kernville, Greenhorn Mountains, Kern Co., California, USA
This is probably one of the best California scheelites you are ever likely to see. The crystal is gemmy, complex and complete all around. Its growth around the epidote makes for an interesting combination specimen. The scheelite also fluoresces white/yellow under SW/LW UV. A beautiful gem scheelite! Many, sadly, were cut into teeny tiny gems!
