Scheelite (fluorescent) with Epidote
Black Morel Mine, Greenhorn Mts, Kern Co., California, USA

Ex. Kay Robertson

Excellent cluster of lustrous Scheelite crystals that are highly translucent. The dominant crystal is over 2 cm in size, and there are smaller Scheelites and dark green Epidotes attached. Of course, the fluorescence of the Scheelite is typically brilliant. A fine thumbnail for the Greenhorn District in California. Very rare, and seldom seen for sale today! Kay bought this in Tucson in the early 1980s directly from the miner.
