Dims: 2.2 x 1.6 x 0.7" (5.6 x 4.1 x 1.8 cm)
Wt: 1.4 oz (23.6 g)
At least 10 intergrown Axinite blades make up this large thumbnail specimen. The largest of these blades has dimensions of 2.2 x 0.8 x 0.4" (5.6 x 2.0 x 1.0 cm), and like the others, is in excellent condition- damage is minimal. Their triclinic form is excellent, with sharp edges and lightly striated but clean faces that possess a pearly-to-vitreous luster. All have a moderate brown coloration that fades to an almost pale lavender color at their edges. They are moderately transparent, but intense cloudiness spoils their clarity. There is no host rock present.
