DescriptionRARE GEMSTONE: SCHEELITE
Scheelite is the ore of Tungsten and occasionally there are crystals that are flawless enough to facet into gemstones such as this one. Scheelite's refractive index and dispersion are moderately high resulting in a high luster and perceptible "fire" that approaches diamond. But due to its softness (4.5 to 5), cut Scheelites are best enjoyed unset as valuable collector's pieces. Additionally, Scheelite fluoresces bright sky blue under SW ultraviolet light. Faceted as an oval brilliant, this rare gemstone is light golden yellow in color, has some very minor inclusions and a very faint veil under the table, otherwise fine. It weighs 24.14 carats and measures 18.3 x 13.2 mm.
Estimate: $2,800 - $3,200.
