Scheelite, albite. muscovite

Scheelite single crystal on a matrix with albite and muscovite. Overall size: 105 mm x 80 mm. Scheelite crystal size: 29 mm across. Weight: 276 g. Field collected in year 2000.

Xuebaoding, Huya, Pingwu, Mianyang, Sichuan, China.

Description from the vendor: "While scheelite is now quite common on the market after the 'China explosion' not many specimens are associated with white albite, as this one is. The contrast is spectacular: on a bed of small gemmy mica crystals are white and brilliant upright albite crystals, and just at the center of everything is the perfect, colorful, euhedral scheelite crystal. So this all makes a great specimen for all collectors of quality material. So if you already have a scheelite, this different one could complete a nice suite."

Rutile

Two crystals with different habit in the same specimen. Overall size: 63 mm x 46 mm x 40 mm. Weight: 183 g. There is a crack along the lower crystal as seen in the photos, but it is not a repair. This may very well be a natural re-healing of the crystal from millions of years ago. Ex Joan Massagué collection.

Carles,
You are doing a real service to the mineral community with your high quality photos from several angles of very nice mineral specimens. It's always good to see as many nice specimens as possible to build a reference frame when evaluating specimens at dealers.
Thank you,
Steve
