Description
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.
