Uvite, Svanbergite, Magnesite
Pomba pit, Serra das Eguas, Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Large Cabinet, 16.7 x 7.3 x 7.0 cm
This gorgeous cabinet plate is superb - lustrous red uvite crystals to several mm in size, perched upon lustrous gem magnesite rhombohedra. Mixed in are a few 0.5 to 2 mm beige rhombs of svanbergite, a rare species sometimes found in this deposit. However, rarely do you find it on the same specimen as the red uvite tourmaline.
