Magnesite with Hematite
stock #18.1-693
Brumado
Bahia, Brazil
6 x 3.7 x 2.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $450


Sharp transparent Magnesite crystals are a contrasting matrix for a sharp tabular silver-black Hematite crystal. A fine association that is very esthetic and a choice specimen from this important Brazilian locality. This sort of gem clear Magnesites from here may be the best in the world for the specie. The mirror bright Hematite added this cluster brings it up to a high level of esthetics. Far more striking in person this is displayable from several angles and is in fine condition too.
Magnesite- large crystals
stock #16.1-1289
Kaswassergraben, GrobBreifing, Hieflau
Styria, Austria
9.1 x 6.8 x 6.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
Worldwide mix summer

Very large to 5.6 CM across Magnesite crystals clustered on a Magnesite matrix from this classic locality. Kaswassergraben is famed for these rare and unusual hexagonal crystals unlike any other locality. This is an excellent example of a rare matrix piece with huge crystals for the locale. The back side is broken from the host rock but the front side main crystals present well with a fine pearly luster and stepped growth faces. I have not seen many of these and this is by far the largest crystal cluster I know of, other large crystals are usually about 2 CM at best.
