The specimen features a lustrous and complete scheelite octahedron nestled in a silvery muscovite cocoon. The photos do not adequately capture the true luster. The translucent scheelite is 3.3 cm wide, and has good butterscotch color. As is typical for the species, the scheelite displays bright bluish-white fluorescence under shortwave UV (second photo). No damage is noted. An aesthetic association specimen which displays quite nicely.
