17089: Scheelite and Muscovite
Mt Xuebaoding, Pingwu County, Mianyang, Sichuan, China
Miniature - 5.3 x 5.2 x 3.7 cm (2.1 x 2.0 x 1.5 inches)
206 grams (0.45 pounds)
Specimen status: Sold

This specimen is nearly all well-crystallized scheelite with a translucent to opaque, dull butterscotch color. Luster is modest. As is typical for the species, the scheelite displays a bright bluish-white fluorescence under shortwave UV (second photo). Accented with silvery muscovite. Except for the usual base issues no damage is seen. Displays well without needing support. A fine representative example for the species and locality, without breaking the bank.
