S20130 - Axinite-(Fe) with Palygorskite - $1250
New Melones Dam, West Belt, Calaveras Co., California
Overall Size: 5.5 x 4 cm
This is a superb example of purple tinged axinite from New Melones in that it is aesthetic, and not just representative. What makes this so nice is “Mountain Leather” or the soft sheet-like mineral palygorskite. Together relatively uncommon and quite attractive.
