POWELLITE RARE MINERAL #A104
Powellite is very similar to the mineral Scheelite, though it is much rarer. It forms a series with that mineral, and contains tungsten in place of the molybdenum. Powellite often forms as an alteration product of Molybdenite, sometimes only partially replacings it. Powellite Powellite is not a common mineral. It forms as a replacement mineral in molybdenum deposits, and its identity in these cases is frequently undetected (though it can easily be observed by its fluorescence). The largest single crystals, which are also of excellent form and highly aesthetic, come from the Indian traprock deposits of Nasik and Jalgaon
