Several well formed pseudo-octahedrons of scheelite with exceptional luster and a deep gemmy orange color sit on a matrix of clear quartz crystals. The largest scheelite is 4 cm end to end and sits near the top of the specimen. A stunning example of scheelite from Pakistan, yes Pakistan!

Smithsonite (Ex. J. Schneider Coll.)

ID: 6201
Add to OrderNot checked

Very sharp rhombs of lustrous smithsonite intermixed with dark sulfides (probably tennantite and galena) and micro quartz crystals. The color of the crystals are a pale pink with yellow/tan zones, which is difficult to capture on camera. The crystals are in perfect condition and the unusually zoned coloration is much better appreciated in person. I would be tempted to call it cobaltoan, were it not for the yellowish zones.
