An excellent miniature displaying a dense cluster of sharply formed Scheelite crystals set in a matrix of Zinnwaldite, the varietal name for a member within the Siderophyllite-Polylithionite lithium Mica series.  The translucent to opaque light clove to cinnamon brown Scheelite crystals form perfect octagonal crystals all between 3 to 4 mm long.  The crystals have sharp triangular faces with a bright glassy lustre and are surrounded by silver platy clusters of Zinnwaldite Mica.  A superb specimen from the famous Cínovec ore deposit at Krusné Hory in the Czech Republic.
