Uvite, Magnesite
Serra das Eguas, Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 5.7 x 4.3 x 3.3 cm
A BEAUTIFUL and SHOWY combination specimen of a line of lustrous, sharp, partially gemmy, dark wine-red uvite crystals to 1.4 cm jauntily cresting along the top of matrix covered with glassy and gemmy, colorless magnesite rhombs. EXCELLENT material from the famous Brumado deposit of Brazil. Very few of these have been found in recent years.
