Brucite On Matrix
Brucite On Matrix, is the mineral form of magnesium hydroxide, with the chemical formula Mg(OH)2. It is a common alteration product of periclase in marble; a low-temperature hydrothermal vein mineral in metamorphosed limestones and chlorite schists; and formed during serpentinization of dunites.
Brucite is often found in association with serpentine, calcite, aragonite, dolomite, magnesite, hydromagnesite, artinite, talc and chrysotile. we had a big surprise on February 2017 when we found this incredible deep yellow colour of brucite on the matrix.
I have been involved in buying and selling Brucite from Day 1 since it came out and handle nearly thousands of pieces but I have not seen it as compact and balanced a specimen as this one especially on matrix a good one extremely rare to find!
The crystal is perfectly perching from chromite Matrix without any damage at all and the quality, colour & lustre can’t get better than this it’s truly a remarkable specimen! In my humble opinion,
It’s one of the finest pieces without a doubt on matrix with such quality, colour and aesthetics without any damage at all.
