Item Description

Three, super-sharp, highly lustrous, tabular, transparent to opaque, dark olive-green, uvite crystals are aesthetically set on scuptural matrix of two generations of magnesite rhombs. The large uvite is 2.0 x 1.9 cm. The large magnesite rhombs are very unusually color zoned, being brown, amber and colorless. I have not seen Brumado magnesites, that look like this. Dramatic and excellent material from this famous deposit.
