Item Description

Fuchsite is the colorful green Chromium-rich variety of Muscovite. Dramatically pearlescent and iridescent chrome-green plates, to 1.7 cm, cover this essentially solid fuchsite two-sided sculptural small cabinet from an unknown pegmatite in Minas Gerais. The color and lustre are much richer and brighter in person. Ex Richard Rossi Collection. Richard is a Senior Fellow of the Mineralogical Record. An excellent example of the species and locality.
