Scheelite crystals partially coated with Quartz on Quartz crystals. The Scheelite crystals have a high, glossy luster (where not covered with Quartz) and are a brown color with a slight hint of purple. Abe Rosenzweig was famous for importing Scheelite and Ferberite crystals from South Korea in the 1960s and lived there at the time. The Scheelite is a vivid blue colored under SW. A note on the photos: they turned out fantastic, but the specimen is slightly less attractive in person primarily due to its size.
Condition: Fairly Good
Flaws: The Scheelite crystals are incomplete.
