Uvite, Magnesite
Serra das Eguas, Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 4.0 x 2.5 cm
A sculptural and aesthetic, V-shaped matrix is covered with sparkling, gemmy and lustrous, green uvite crystals to 9 mm. One arm of the V is beautifully accented with a cluster of glassy, colorless magnesite crystals. The density of uvites is way above average on this fine piece from recent finds from the Brumado Mine of Brazil.
