Scheelite crystals from Mount Xuebaoding, China are considered the world's best examples of this unusual and highly collectible Tungsten mineral. This superb cabinet-size specimen features a large, lustrous, deep orange crystal perched aesthetically on muscovite crystal matrix. Ideal display aesthetics and great orange color combined with bright luster make this a fantastic Xuebaoding scheelite. The locality is now essentially closed and mined out, and these are surely to become modern "Chinese mineral classics." Annette Slade photo.
