A series between Uvite (OH-dominant end-member) and Fluor-uvite

Note: The species uvite has been redefined by the IMA (2011) into two species:

hydroxyl-dominant: uvite - which we refer to as uvite (OH-dominant end-member) to avoid confusion with historical use of the name.

fluorine-dominant: fluor-uvite

Any unanalysed references or photos for uvite should be added to this page, and only moved to the correct species page if analysis can be done to identify the correct end-member.

Visit gemdat.org for gemological information about Uvite. Currently in public beta-test.
