Several nice purple-gray dipyramidal Scheelite crystals to over 1cm set in tan Dolomite crystal matrix, the Scheelite crystals fluoresce blue-white under SW UV light. Nice piece!

This specimen comes with a label from the Abe Rosenzweig Collection, a well known collector, dealer, and teacher and the Oberlin, Ohio address dates it between 1970 and 1977, so it's more vintage than antique.
