A single scheelite crystal, opaque to translucent, and glassy; free of matrix. Good burnt orange color. The termination is pristine. Displays brilliant blue-white fluorescence under shortwave UV (brighter than the second photo shows). Minor muscovite. Except for the usual edge and base issues, free of damage. Displays perfectly without needing addition support. A very affordable example of this classic Mt Xuebaoding material.
