Locality: Camp Bird Mine, Ouray, Ouray Co., Colorado, USA
Dimensions: 3.4 x 3.0 x 3.0 cm

One of the first specimen mining projects Collector's Edge was involved in was at the Camp Bird Mine back in 1993, when gold miners encountered a zone of scheelite pockets which produced the best crystallized scheelite ever found in Colorado. This is a great example, with several lustrous, well-formed distorted dipyramids to ~2 cm on gypsum matrix; large for the locality. An excellent Colorado scheelite and a real rarity on today's specimen market.
