Mineral Specimen #5402    Chromian Uvite Tourmaline on Magnesite

Brumado, Bahia, Brazil

Well formed Uvite crystals with a deep red color. Note: the color changes a bit depending upon the light source . The pictures were taken under 3500K CFLs - under incandescent or natural sunlight, the crystals are redder in color and less brown. The crystals are semi gemmy to gemmy and have a high luster. The Magnesite matrix has a slight pink tint due to micro inclusions of Uvite. The Magnesite is the ore being mined at the location.

Condition: Fairly Good

Flaws: There are areas where the crystals are broken. Those intact are in excellentcondition.
