ex. Dr. Werner Paar Collection, Scheelite is a rare associate in the Romanian polymetallic deposits. The Paar collection has several nice examples of this material, of which this is a very choice small miniature specimen! The major crystal is 1.5 cm and shows an intense deep blue color when backlit. It is complete on the front, just slightly contacted on the backside. Many are just gray, this blue color being therefore highly desirable.
