Axinite, Quartz, Datolite
Dal'negorsk (Dalnegorsk; Tetyukhe; Tjetjuche; Tetjuche), Primorskiy Kray, Far-Eastern Region, Russia
Cabinet, 10.0 x 5.3 x 5.1 cm
A superb Russian axinite from Dalnegorsk where they are much more uncommon than from the other Russian locality of Puiva, with razor-sharp crystals to 2.75 cm, showing glassy luster and virtually no damage. They are accented with gemmy little tabular datolites and bright quartz crystals. Complete display face and trimmed nicely, though saw marks remain on the backside. A difficult specimen to shoot, much better in person! 10 x 5.3 x 5.1 cm
