Calcite with Scheelite and Fluorite

Beautiful cabinet-size display specimen of many sparkling calcite crystals. It is hard to appreciate them unless the specimen is seen in real life where it can be rotated in the light.
The many, tiny scheelite crystals fluoresce brilliant blue in short-wave UV (shown in right-hand photo), while the calcite has a very pale yellowish response.
The fluorite crystals are visible with a hand lens. They do not appear to fluoresce.
