Ferberite Pseudomorph after Scheelite

Ferberite Pseudomorph after Scheelite from Trumbull, Fairfield Co., Connecticut


Robert Lavinsky


An excellent Ferberite crystal over Scheelite, where the crystal replaced the original mineral. This material came out over 100 years ago, and is considered one of the most classic of East Coast "black uglies," and quite hard to obtain today. This is one of the largest examples, and certainly the best and largest single crystal that I have seen for sale myself by a long run. It is remarkably complete, if a bit crude on some faces, all around.
