Axinite - Gemmy crystals
New Melones Spillway (Dam site), Calaveras County
California, United States
3.8 x 2.3 x 2.3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $300


A very glassy cluster of transparent Axinite crystals from the collection of Brett Keller (Mineral wines). The new Melones Spillway of Calaveras county had a small but exceptional find in the 1970's. The Axinite (Ferro-Axinite) are considered to be among the best ever found in the USA. This piece is A choice small miniature that could perhaps be trimmed to thumbnail size. It has choice color, luster and transparency. No damage seen by naked eye but with a good loupe a few micro rough bits can be found. This is in far better condition than most, very close to full perfect.
