Scheelite on Quartz
Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 6.0 x 4.1 cm
Schlaggenwald, Bohemia, Czech Republic

An incredibly rare, rich example of scheelite from this classic locality best kown for cassiterite, as long ago as 250 years. I have seen small, ugly, insignificant scheelite specimens in the past but none of this magnitude, and with such good documentation and pedigree in any case. It is much prettier in person, by the way. Note the old labels....he acquired this personally from Sir Russell who in turn acquired it from the collection of H.F. Collins (as noted on the Russell label included)
