Scheelite on Quartz
Tong Wha Mine, Neungam-ri, Angseong-myeon, Chunglu
5 x 2.7 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
A well presented, sharp, shiny Scheelite is perfectly perched on the side of a quartz crystal. Good Korean Scheelites were never very common 30 years ago and now are seen when older collections are dispursed. The Scheelite (1.7 CM) is translucent and has a few areas of selected etching. Overall in good shape, one tiny area of chipping can be found with magnification. A nice, esthetic and affordable old Korean piece.
