Uvite, Quartz, Magnesite
Serra das Eguas, Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Miniature, 3.6 x 1.8 x 1.1 cm
A fine thumbnail specimen of a Brumado classic: a razor-sharp rhomb of deep green uvite, here embedded deeply in a clear crystal of quartz. There is a smaller uvite below it, and you can see small rhombs of magnesite, a classic association from here.
