Scheelite, Calcite, Muscovite and Pyrite from Yaogangxian Mine, China

Dimension: 3.9cm x 3cm x 2.2cm

Weight: 18g / 90 carat

Locality: Yaogangxian Mine, Yizhang Co., Hunan Province, China


A cute miniature from the Yaogangxian Mine which has 4 minerals – Calcite, Scheelite, Muscovite and Pyrite.  Scheelite from the Yaogangxian Mine is rarely found and it usually comes in dark brown to toffee-brown color but Scheelite on this specimen exhibits a bright toffee-orange color, resembling those from the famous Pingwu Beryl Mine (Mt. Xuebaoding).  Associated with intergrowth champagne gold metallic Muscovite and micro-crystals of Pyrite sprinkled on the top of the white Calcite, what a unique and complex combination!
