This is a good piece with several minerals which are reported from this locality on Mindat. The Scheelite is white to light yellow, granular and inconspicious, but it sticks out under SW UV as blue parts as seen in the photos. In one case it forms a halo around a Cassiterite crystal (second and third photos). The Sillimanite shown at blue arrows are very nice silky white crystals. All of the large dark parts are brown to dark red Cassiterite.

It was collected in 1946 by Arnold Hampson.
