Mineral Specimen #1322 Uvite Tourmaline Crystal
Brumado. Bahia, Brazil
3.5 x 3.5 x 2.9 cm
This is a very large single Uvite crystal for this location. The crystal form is so blocky, it at first looks like a garnet. The color is rich olive green. The surfaces have a high luster. Three of the faces (the front) are perfectly smooth. Six of the other sides are striated. The back of the specimen is the point of attachement. The specimen is in excellent condition with no appreciable damage although one corner has a point of attatchment. There is a growth line across two faces; this is not a crack.
