One of the most classic of USA psuedomorphs the Wolframite (Ferberite) after Scheelite from Trumbull, Connecticut. This specimen is well documented, passing through the hands of Larry Conklin, Jim Chenard, Leonard Himes and Joe Stachura. This is a sizable piece with several crystals showing the elongated pseudo-octahedral form of the Scheelite in distinctive crude sooty Ferberite. The matrix is largely Scheelite and the specimen is quite rich in Scheelite for the locality. The mining at this locality dates from the 1820's to just after 1900. Some specimens were collected from the dumps years ago but the better pieces date from the working era.
