Uvite, Magnesite
Serra das Eguas, Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 5.5 x 3.5 cm
A very showy and excellent combination specimen from a recent find at Brumado, Brazil. A solid field of sparkly, gemmy, green uvite microcrystals rests attractively on a sloping matrix of massive magnesite. A vertical "wall" of a large, thick, unusually flattened, gemmy and lustrous, amber magnesite crystal "protects" the uvites. And the large magnesite is nicely fringed with uvite crystals.
