Uvite Tourmaline with Magnesite

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC10925
A crystallised matrix of colourless rhombohedral crystals of Magnesite (to 7 mm on edge) is richly coated with excellent, part gemmy crystals of the Tourmaline group mineral Uvite.  The Uvite crystals are perfectly developed with highly lustrous faces and are a deep burnt cherry red to clove brown.  From most localities Uvite is green, but the much rarer red crystals are well known from Brumado in Bahia, Brazil.  This specimen would be a great addition to any collector building a suite representing the Tourmaline group.
