2CN43 Scheelite

8.0x 6.1x 2.9 cm
$385

A beautiful example of scheelite from a new find. This area is mainly known for its pale green fluorite, but I would consider this to be a significant find of the species in China, joining the discoveries Ping Wu, Yaogangxian, and Inner Mongolia.  What makes these unique is the richness of the scheelite—the plates are entirely covered with scheelite octahedrons.  I have seen larger crystals from elsewhere, but this desnsity and coverage of crystals is quite unusual for the species, from anywhere in the world.
