17PE15 Axinite on Andradite Garnet
Canta Prov., Lima Dept., Peru
8.2x 6.5x 6.8 cm
$585

A cabinet sized specimen featuring numerous axinite crystals on matrix, from the new find. This is a rather unusual specimen, in that what at first appears to be a iron-rich matrix is actually a mass of small andradite garnets.  

Axinite has been found at a few locations in Peru over the last few years, though to date I think these are the best-- they almost resemble the standard-setting pieces from Dal'Negorsk or California.
