Uvite, Magnesite
Serra das Eguas, Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Miniature, 4.8 x 3.1 x 1.5 cm
Beautifully gemmy and lustrous, deep cherry-red uvite crystals to 6 mm are nicely set as isolated crystals or in clusters on gemmy, very glassy, magnesite crystal matrix on this showy and excellent specimen 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.
