Description:An adorable Mt Xuebaoding scheelite miniature. The pristine 3.8 cm, doubly terminated tetragonal crystal is beautifully accented with bed of pearlescent muscovite plates. The very glassy, highly lustrous, golden-orange crystal has some desirable gemmier terminations. Ghostly white fluorescence. Quality like this is simply not coming out any more....the "flood" of world class scheelite is pretty much over. These are the world's finest scheelites and this is a super miniature example with muscovite. It has multiple fine display views. Valued in the Gallery at $950 and worth it.
