Scheelite- on recrystallized Quartz with Fluorite.
Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang County, Chenzhou Pref.
Hunan Province, China
7.6 x 5.5 x 1.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $290
Spring 2017

A very unusual Yaogangxian specimen with the matrix a flattened Quartz shard that has recrystallized with one face coated with these clear Scheelites, the opposite side is dusted with clear tiny Fluorites. In fine condition, the Scheelites are bright and glassy, micro pyrites are seen on some Scheelite crystals. Formerly in the Shields Flynn collection, this is quite choice (and certainly not typical) for this famed locale. Attractive.
