Scheelite on Quartz with Calcite, Cassiterite etc
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan Province, China
7.8 x 6.3 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $440
Spring 2014

If you know or collect Yaogangian, you can see this is a VERY fine Scheelite multi-specie piece! In excellent undamaged condition, this is densely packed with bright, lustrous and transparent/translucent Scheelites with honey brown color. This quality and esthetic is a rare for the locality. We selected this piece at the mine in 2006. There is nothing like this on the market now. Yaogangxian is the most famous and significant locality in China for collectors. Good Scheelite was always rare from there, this one is exceptional and the mine is now closed.
