A rather large and lustrous, transparent to opaque scheelite crystal cluster. The longest individual crystal edge is 4.1 cm. Minor muscovite and calcite are noted. (The scheelite-calcite occurrence is pretty uncommon at this locality.) As is typical for scheelite from locality, the specimen has strong blue-white fluorescence under shortwave UV. A little edgewear is noted, but overall in very good condition.
