Beryl (Var: Emerald), Magnesite, Uvite
Serra das Eguas, Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 4.1 x 3.9 cm
A striking, complete-all-around specimen of surreal, gemmy and lustrous, parallel-growth, green-blue emerald crystals with glassy, colorless magnesite rhombs from a new find at Brumado, Brazil. The emeralds reach 3.0 cm on this beauty and are lined up like a series of green smokestacks covered with sparkly jewels. The color is not deep green but the association is really unusual. The major emeralds are pristine and a few scattered, darker green uvite crystals are a very nice accent.
