Brucite, as a collectable mineral, is uncommon, normally found only in a handful of deposits around the world and often relegated to unimpressive colors and luster. New, recent finds in Pakistan, exhibit vibrant lemon-yellow crystals, with an attractive pearly/waxy luster, highly translucent, and forming aggregates of rounded, botryoidal-like crystals, often on matrix. Other colors include colorless, white, green, light-blue, gray, brown-red, and lemon-yellow/honey-yellow as previously mentioned. It often occurs in association with Calcite, Aragonite, Serpentine and Magnetite to name a few.
The crystal system for Brucite is hexagonal/trigonal, often in thin tabular crystals and crystal clusters. Other forms include scaly, foliated, bladed, fibrous, rounded crystal masses, botryoidal, spherical and rosettes.
Brucite is a relatively common mineral, but collectable specimens come from only a handful of locations. Notable localities include Canada, Italy, Pakistan, South Africa and USA (Nevada, Pennsylvania).
