Scheelite on Dolomite with minor Ferberite
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County, Chenzhou Pref.
Hunan Province, China
5.3 x 4.1 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $325
pre Tucson 2015 update

A Yaoganxian Scheelite that is really attractive and has very sharp individual crystals to 1.3 CM. Great luster and translucent Scheelite contrasts well with the crystallized Dolomite matrix. A few crystals at the edges are incomplete they seem contacted, but the main specimen is in excellent condition. The entire specimen is formed over Ferberite crystals that are responsible for the bladed shape of the whole piece. The Ferberite is encased in Dolomite and only visible at the base where it was removed.
