Well formed, dark red colored Uvite crystals on well formed, white to clear, rhombahedral crystals of Magnesite. The crystals of both species are on the larger size for the location, especially the Uvite. The Uvite crystals have a high luster with very smooth faces. The Magnesite crystals have a glossy luster. Please note: Uvite was recently split into two species, Uvite and Fluor-Uvite with the latter more common. The location is now considered to be the type location for Uvite. Without testing, it is uncertain which species this is.

Condition: Very Good

Flaws: There is a small chip on one of the corners of the Uvite crystal which seperated from the other two.
