Dravite Tourmaline, Magnesite

Specimen # 100962
Mineral: Dravite Tourmaline, Magnesite
Location: Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Size: 4.5 x 4.3 x 3.0 cm


A beautiful sharp, lustrous green dravite tourmaline crystal on magensite. There is a thin coating of a second generation of sparkling magnesite crystals on this piece, and the coating covers three faces of the uvite crystal. In very good condition, there is a chips at a corner of the dravite crystal and many of the background magnesites are not complete. Good green dravite crystals of this quality are rare, and much less common at Brumado than green uvite. An excellent, unusual dravite.
