Uvite, Magnesite
Serra das Eguas, Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 8.1 x 7.2 x 5.3 cm
An incredibly rich, dazzlingly sparkly specimen of uvite tourmaline in a classic combination with rhombs of gemmy magnesite. There is no matrix here at all - this is ALL uvite and magnesite crystals! There are uvites here up to one centimeter in size; they have a wonderful glassy luster, as do the magnesites.
