Jalagon, Maharashtra, India
Miniature, 3.3 x 2.0 x 2.0 cm
Powellite (a solid solution series member with Scheelite) is hard to find itself, but almost never seen beyond opaque crystals. These crystals have everything you would want from any pow: excellent clarity; nice light to medium amber color; and superb luster. This piece has exceptional display qualities for these reasons and also because of the way the crystals are balanced on the right amount of matrix, for contrast. They are complete and pristine in front, though contacted in back. This specimen is way beyond almost any other Powellite you will find for the size and price.
