Uvite on Magnesite
Brumado, Bahia, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 6.4 x 6.4 cm
This specimen features very LARGE and SUPERB intergrown uvite crystals, measuring 2 cm across, sharp as razors and with terrific glassy luster! Other smaller crystals are nearby as well. The uvites are beautifully isolated on a matrix of sparkly, stark white magnesite. There is some damage to the smaller crystals; but the two big ones, which is what this specimen is about, are pristine. The contrast within the nestled vug os sparkling magnesite is STRIKING.
