Scheelite w. Goshenite & Pyrite
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
8.1 x 6 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $700
Post Tucson 2015

An excellent and very weird Scheelite from the great Xuebaoding locale. Deep orange-red color Scheelite largest being 4.8 CM in elongated psuedo-octahedral crystals that also shows some selected etching that is almost never seen. The form is unusual and the matrix is even more odd, completely unlike other Xuebaoding specimens. Close exam shows small but typical flattened Goshenite Beryls and related minerals seen from this find. The Scheelite is quite clear and has gemmy areas, In 16 years I have only seen 2 specimens of this style.
