Uvite Tourmaline
Brumado, Bahia, Brazil
Miniature, 4.2 x 1.1 x 1.0 cm
Ex. Francesco Bedogne

An exquisite and sculptural stacked cluster of red uvite tourmaline crystals from Brumado, Brazil. This artistic piece initiates with lustrous, red-orange, prismatic, slightly divergent crystals of uvite tourmaline that bifurcate near the top almost resembling a miniature dragon extending its head and neck. The chiseled uvite is graced by an array of several jewel-like rhombs of magnesite and a single, frosted 4 mm quartz crystal. A particularly refined miniature. This is a very rare color, and clusters particularly are uncommon! Probably of 1990's vintage.
