A calcium tungstate mineral, It is an important ore of tungsten (wolfram). Well-formed crystals are sought by collectors and are occasionally fashioned into gemstones when suitably free of flaws. Scheelite has been synthesized using the Czochralski process; the material produced may be used to imitate diamond, as a scintillator, or as a solid-state lasing medium. It glows bright blue under UV light, and naturally is an orange color. Scheelite was first described in 1751 for an occurrence in Mount Bispbergs klack, Säter, Dalarna, Sweden, and named for Carl Wilhelm Scheele (1742–1786). Owing to its unusual heaviness, it had been given the name tungsten by the Swedes, meaning “heavy stone.” The name was later used to describe the metal, while the ore itself was given the name scheelerz or scheelite. Stones that are white with blue and orange coloring to them are not in fact scheelite, but calcite with dolomite. It was incorrectly named due to its ability to fluoresce the same color as scheelite. Both Calcite and Dolomite have a hardness of 3, but together have a hardness of 5. This makes it a perfect stone for carving and making jewelry. Currently this stone is only found in Turkey.
