Dodo Mine, Tyumenskaya Oblast', Polar Urals, Western-Siberian Region, Russia
Miniature, 3.7 x 2.6 x 0.7 cm
A sharp, thin floater crystal with excellent luster and vibrant brown hue, from finds in the 1980s that are now modern classics and the pinnacle of alpine-type axinites. Sadly, the piece has minor edge wear, a few dings around the edges, which can be seen on close inspection. Still, the overall form, gemminess, and color add to the value and make it desirable as a good reference example from this important find. Ex. Charlie Key.
