Uvite occurs in several different colours at Brumado in Bahia State, Brazil, this specimen being deep cherry red.  Uvite is a member of the Tourmaline Group and in this example has crystallised on colourless Magnesite with a bright and glassy lustre.  Two of the three Uvites are perfectly developed, although partly embedded in the crystallised Magnesite.  The third and smallest crystal has some damage but sits prettily to one side.  The two main Uvite crystals measure 1.9 x 1.5 x 1.4 cm and 1.3 x 1.2 x 1.2 cm (approximately).  The Magnesite forms equant rhombohedral crystals up to 0.8 cm on edge, completely enveloping a long and narrow rib which sits upright along a flat face.  A terrific display specimen of red Uvite Tourmaline on Magnesite from Brumado.
