Item Description

Mineral specimens of ANY type are quite rare from Uganda, but a ferberite pseudomorph after a sharp scheelite crystal is REMARKABLE and EXTREMELY RARE. This moderately lustrous, metallic-gray, sharply octahedral crystal with embedded quartz is from the obscure Kirwa Mine. it is complete all around. This wolfram mine was active from the 1940s to 1979. Try to find another - these are almost never on the market! Ex Dennis Mullane Collection. valued $400
