PAS08 Quartz, Stolzite on Scheelite
Mundo Nuevo Mine, Mundo Nuevo, Sanchez Carrion Prov., La Libertad Dept., Peru
8.3x 5.8x 7.3 cm

A very rich specimen of stolzite dusted scheelite, on quartz.  This is actually one of the better pieces from the group, but because the scheelites are nestled in among the quartz crystals, it is very difficult to focus the camera properly.

The quartz crystals are very transparent, and the bright yellow green color of the stozite dusted scheelites makes them quite visually striking.

I had seen a small group of these at Tucson 2015, and was hoping to get more on my last trip to Peru.  Although the find was small,  I was able to come back with a group of pretty good pieces.  While these are never particularly "sharp", those I saw in Tucson looked especially melted-- the pieces I came back with have well formed scheelites, cleaner (I think) form and a generous coating of the powdery yellow-green stolzite that makes them so eye catching.
