Serra das Eguas, Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Miniature, 4.5 x 3.7 x 1.4 cm
Beautifully gemmy and lustrous, olive-green uvite crystals to 1.0 cm cover a thin matrix plate of magnesite on this showy and excellent specimen from a recent find at the famous 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.
