Magnesite with Uvite
stock #21.1-174
Brumado
Bahia, Brazil
6 x 4.3 x 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $1200
Late Summer 2021

A killer, well crystalized Magnesite with the addition of yellow to green Uvite crystals from the now classic finds at Brumado. These are considered by most collectors to be the very best Magnesites ever found worldwide, and this is a superb example. This is a very early specimen from the first imports of the late Luis Menezes, and with a rare perfection and quality. The Magnesite is super clear, very sharp and the largest crystal is 3.4 CM. We have not seen any good or new specimens for the past few years. The arrangement of the rhombs on this specimen is especially esthetic and the Uvites are also glassy, colorful and add a nice contrast.

Uvite - Tourmaline group - green crystals
stock #8.AE-955
Brumado
Bahia, Brazil
3.2 x 2.7 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $180
Winter 2016-17

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.
