Uvite on Magnesite
10.3 x 7.4 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
Bright green gemmy Uvite Tourmalines on a contrasting Pink Magnesite crystallized matrix. From finds in Brumado by the late Luis Menezes a decade ago, a very choice specimen that is no longer available in this fine quality. In excellent undamaged condition this is a lustrous, showy cabinet display piece.
From the now classic finds at Brumado, a very well composed cluster of glassy deep green crystals. In fine condition with a few tiny flecks of adhering quartz otherwise this is all Uvite. Prior to these finds almost all known Uvite was black. There seems to be little to no new production now.
A very pretty small miniature with sharp glassy crystals. Micros of Goyazite as well as gemmy rhombs of Magnesite complete the specimen. In fine condition, this find at Brumado has produced some fantastic examples of this tourmaline family member. Good value.
