Scheelite on Quartz -classic European
Cinovec, Krusne Hory Mts.
Usti nad Labem Region, Czech Republic
5.7 x 2.9 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $750


A rarely available habit of Scheelite in balls and masses of tiny crystals on a doubly terminated Quartz. This is a very old specimen from the area also known as Zinnwald (on German side of the border) in the Erzgebirge / Krusne Hory mountains. The Scheelite balls are up to 5mm and composed of masses of small crystals clustered together. With good magnification it can be seen that some of the crystals are elongated pseudo-octahedra. In fine condition the quartz is undamaged and iridescent in person. From an old Czech collection, this is the most esthetic example of this habit I have ever seen.
