Item Description

An attractive cabinet sized example of these wonderful rare yellow Brucites from Pakistan. These pieces were certainly out of the norm in terms of Pakistani minerals, as they were not only the first Brucites of note to come out of the country, but they completely shocked mineral collectors for their fantastic intense yellow hue. Without a doubt, they are among the most colorful examples of the species ever found. There is no other world locality that has produced such amazing yellow color. This specimen features attractive, lustrous, translucent, rich yellow colored groups of Brucite with a bit of attached matrix to create a sculptural and three-dimensional display piece. The fantastic color combined with the internal gemminess and wonderful radial form makes the piece highly desirable and eye-catching. Although there were many of these pieces on the market a few years ago, there seems to be less of them out there recently. Typically these kind of discoveries produce a limited number of pieces so don't miss out on picking up one if you want one.
