Brucite is an uncommon mineral, up to now found only in a handful of deposits around the world and relegated to unimpressive shades of white to green. Thanks to new, recent finds in Pakistan, we now have Brucite with vibrant lemon-yellow crystals, with a great pearly/waxy luster, forming aggregates of rounded, botryoidal-like crystals, often on matrix. This particular piece is an exceptionally large cluster of Brucite with just a small amount of matrix, and matches the aforementioned description perfectly! A large, rare and striking piece in excellent condition.
