Scheelite and Quartz

£775   €878  $1,011 approx.  

This specimen is priced in pounds sterling, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC2760

A wonderful specimen of lustrous Scheelite and translucent Quartz from China. The Scheelite forms sharp octahedral crystals with very bright glassy lustre and translucent brown in colour. The Quartzes are doubly terminated, also lustrous and translucent and appear to be 'glued' together by the Scheelite. One side of the specimen is coated by a drusy layer of Dolomite, on which tiny green botryoids of Chlorite are scattered. The Chlorite is also seen preferentially grow dotted on one face of the Scheelite. An attractive specimen that displays well from both sides with sharp crystals and high lustre.
