Axinite and Quartz
Dachang Ore Field, Nandan
Guangxi Province, China
7 x 4.7 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $475
Winter 2016-17

An unusually well-crystallized Axinite from China that host well-perched doubly terminated Quartz crystals for a nice contrast. Ex Shields Flynn collection, this is older material from about 2004. The Nandan mines have mostly been shut down and were only producing good minerals for a few short years. The Axinites from the area are probably the best ever to come out of China. In excellent condition (few were not badly damaged) with the only real bruising at the outside edges. Very nice luster and three dimensional relief.
