#02 / AXINITE-(Fe) - Russia
Locality: Puyva, Kush'oyka Mountain, Western Siberia, Russia
Size: 5.5 x 4.5 x 1.2 cm.
A large, floater crystal, crystallized all around, from the now famous Polar Urals of Russia. If you haven't seen one of these for a while, it's because they are considered the finest axinite crystals ever and there aren't anymore to go around. This crystal is fantastic, with glass like luster, great form and only very little
edge wear on a few edges. Overall in very good condition. These came out in the early to mid 90's and have pretty much disappeared from the todays market.
