The scheelite occurred in Sang Dong mine are disseminated with a fine grain, and shelved pale blue or white color under the fluorescence. But among them, We can often observe the yellow fluorescent color mineral grains, which were called the powellite from the past time without any detail mineral study. I studied the characteristics of Sang-Dong scheelite and the so called powellite. In the result, the so called powellite is proved to be the molybdenum bearing scheelite in the view of specific gravity, index of refraction, chemical composition, other microscopic properties, and dressing. Such a scheelite is contained usually Zor 3% Mo, and oftenly 4 or 6% Mo, and fluorescent colors are pale yellow, leman yellow and chrome yellow.
