Scheelite with Quartz

ID: CC12685
A superb Scheelite crystal measuring 1.0 x 1.0 x 0.4 cm set in milky-white Quartz from Carrock mine in Carrock Fell, Caldbeck Fells, Cumbria.  This mine was once a favourite amongst collectors but for many years now has been off-limits due to strict laws prohibiting mineral collecting in the area. The crystal has sharp edges and well-defined faces and is a typical translucent buff. Under SWUV the crystal emits a ghostly-blue fluorescence, along with other small Scheelite crystals and anhedral (no crystal faces) patches of Scheelite within the Quartz matrix.  A very fine Scheelite from Carrock mine.
