Uvite, Florencite, Magnesite
Serra das Eguas, Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 7.6 x 4.5 x 2.6 cm
A SUPERB and showy Brumado combination specimen of very glassy and sparkly magnesite crystals richly and beautifully sprinkled with gemmy, dark cherry-red uvite crystals to 5 mm. The HIGHLIGHT of the specimen, though, is the LARGE, 5 mm, orange florencite crystal nicely set between red uvites and glassy, colorless magnesite crystals. Florcencite is a RARE cerium phosphate and this is a large and sharp crystal.
