Le Bourg dOisans, Grenoble, Isere
7.4 x 4.8 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
Classic old specimen of Axinite from the French Isère region at Bourg-d'Oisans. The largest crystals are over 2.5 cm and have some very glassy faces. The matrix is mostly Axinite as well with just a little Quartz. There are smaller crystals, contacts and some broken edges so this is not for perfectionists but it is still a very nice example of this famed locality. Ex John Roger Mitchell collection, his label notes he obtained this in 1983.
