ID: CC21543
A rich cluster of cream to dark tan Scheelite crystals cover an approximately 1.5 x 1 cm area on a blocky matrix of milky vein Quartz shot through with black blades of Wolframite and a coating of Muscovite mica. This fine small miniature is from Carrock mine in the Caldbeck Fells of Cumbria, England, a firm favourite with minerals collectors until collecting was strictly banned during, I think, the 1990’s. The Scheelite forms well developed, intergrown crystals which display many faces and have a dull to semi-bright glassy lustre.
