A cluster of several mostly translucent, intergrown scheelite octahedra, with butterscotch color and good luster. Small gemmy areas are present. The largest individual crystal is 3.4 cm along the edge. Displays an intense bluish-white fluorescence under shortwave UV (second photo). Minor muscovite is noted. Outside of the usual backside issues, only very minor edgewear is noted under the hand lens. Displays well at several angles, depending upon which crystal face you use for the base. Overall very good condition for the species, locality, and price range.
