Scheelite crystals from Mount Xuebaoding, China are considered the world's best examples of this unusual and collectible Tungsten mineral. This superb large cabinet-size specimen features a large, lustrous, deep orange crystal perched aesthetically on muscovite crystal matrix. Ideal display aesthetics and great deep orange color 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." Riley Owen photo. Ex - Steve Neely Collection
