Purple, Transparent Axinite-(Mg)
Purple, Transparent Axinite-(Mg) from Merelani Mine, Arusha, Tanzania
Collection Robert Lavinsky
Description A cute little gem crystal of the rare species Axinite-(Mg), in absurdly gemmy quality. It is unusual for form and thickness; so I do not think anybody would have an easy time guessing what this glassy, clear, pale-lavender colored crystal might be without a nametag on it! Found summer, 2010.
Locality Merelani Mine, Arusha, Tanzania
Dimensions 15 x 13 x 3 mm.
Specimen Grade C
