17PE13 Axinite with Epidote
Canta Prov., Lima Dept., Peru
12.5x 9.1x 4.8 cm
$900

A beautiful cabinet sized specimen from recent finds in Peru.  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 resemble the standard-setting pieces from Dal'Negorsk or California, and have excellent richness, transparency, color, and luster relative to what I've seen from Peru in the past.  This one has a group of crystals mixed with dark green epidote, all sitting on a rock matrix.  There's a little hole between the axinite and the rock-- it gives it a slightly more sculptural appearance.
