Scheelite on Muscovite
stock #8.1-112
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
8 6.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $2200
Spring 2013

A fine yellow-orange crystal perched perfectly on the muscovite matrix. A modern classic, Pingwu has produced the worlds best scheelites, this is a much better than average piece. Well exposed, sharp and in fine condition, the Scheelite is 4.6 CM across with bright glassy luster. By naked eye there is no damage at all but with 10x magnification a very tiny bit of edge scuffing is seen. The form is an elongated psudo-octahedron and the forward facing termination is unusually gemmy and transparent. Good examples in this condition have become very hard to find.
Elbaite -(unusual gem crystal)
stock #A7-181-144-1
Himalaya Mine, Gem Hill,Mesa Grande District, San Diego County
California, United States
2.8 x 1.4 CM (small miniature)
price: $380
Spring 2013

This looks at first glance like a cute beryl crystal with a mint green color, but it is an unusual older Tourmaline from the Himalaya Mine. Sharp, complete, glassy and odd! In some light it looks more blue green and is 100 percent gem grade. Ex. Larry White collection, and not a typical California Elbaite at all!
