Axinite-(Mg)
Miniature, 3.2 x 2.0 x 0.5 cm
Merelani Mine, Arusha, Tanzania
SOLD
A sharp, very pale lavender-colored crystal of the rare magnesio-axinite which rarely comes from this mine (found summer, 2010). Complete all around, this crystal is MUCH gemmier and more lustrous in person, and is more transparent than the photos may reflect. Unusually, it has broad terminations with bevels, instead of the normally thinner terminations. 28 carats (about 6 grams)
