Mount Xuebaoding (literal translation: "snowy treasure peak") is located in the Tibetan Plateau of western China in Sichuan province, and produces what are certainly the world's best scheelite specimens. This specimen features brilliant deep orange crystals forming a large cluster, with exceptional size and gemminess. The gem-quality corners of these scheelite crystals really add some character, and the overall composition of the piece is superb.Mount Xuebaoding is now essentially closed and is not producing any more major scheelite specimens like this.
