Uvite, Magnesite
Serra das Eguas, Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 3.8 x 3.8 cm
An AESTHETIC specimen of two gemmy and lustrous, reddish-brown or burnt-red uvite crystals to 1.3 cm beautifully placed on opposing edges of a large, glassy magnesite rhomb from recent finds at Brumado, Brazil. These uvites are so gemmy, that they look like gem spessartine garnets, except for the crystal form. Classic material from a famous locality.
