Magenesite
Brumado , Bahia, Brazil

This is the finest magnesite specimen I have ever had, and it is from the top location in the world for the species, Bahia, Brazil. It is an old specimen, probably from the Pomba Pit. The largest crystal is about 1.5 cm on edge. I have certainly seen larger crystals (I had one from Luis Menezes that weighed pounds), but this plate is nearly pristine. In fact, I thought it was pristine until I noticed a little chip out of one corner of the crystal extending of the top of the specimen. It is very hard to see but I like to be very complete in my descriptions. The piece has great luseter and a dramatic arrangement of different sized crystals. I understand very little is coming out of this area these days. As good as it gets: I don't think I will see another this good again.
