OKF-415       Axinite    Henan, Lushi Prov., China.  A fine plate of purple/ brown axinite crystals to 1.4 cm each with minor, white calcites sprinkled on top to add some contrast.  This high luster plate is actually a floater which has minor mineralization on its sides and back.  Overall measurements are 9 x 7.5 x 3.5 cm.  Zero damage and it even stands nicely on edge for display.  All the axinites are sharp in form and the piece is very aesthetic although the photos have a hard time reflecting this fact.  An excellent example of this uncommon material.  175$
