Uvite, Magnesite
Serra das Eguas, Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 6.7 x 4.7 x 2.9 cm
Three very sharp, highly-lustrous, tabular; transparent to opaque, dark olive-green uvite crystals are aesthetically set on sculptural matrix of two generations of magnesite rhombs. The large uvite is 2.0 x 1.9 cm. The large magnesite rhombs are very unusually color-zoned, being brown, amber and colorless. I have not seen Brumado magnesites that look like this. Fine material from this famous deposit.
