Ferroaxinite- large compound crystals
Polar Urals - Tyumenskaya Oblast
Western Siberian Region, Russia
6.7 x 5.4 x 1.4 CM (cabinet)
Big and very lustrous Axinite crystals reaching 6.7 CM in size, with razor sharp edges. Transparent on the edges and translucent elsewhere, this is an older, flashy and eyecatching specimen. These have become quite rare (and very expensive) over the past decade or so, this size and quality was never common even then. Now considered a classic find, this example is a relative bargain. Some slight chipping but far less than most do and displayable without being noticable.
