The upper side of this piece is composed of a magnificent cluster of brown axinite blades. In the somewhat irony matrix, are patches of epidote. There is one very nice quartz point among the axinite.

Axinite is composed of calcium aluminum boro-silicate. It is part of a group of minerals that form bladed crystals. Judging by the dark brown color of these specimens, they appear to be iron-rich axinite (Fe), or ferroaxinite. The mineral’s name comes from the Greek “AXINA”, or axe, alluding to the shape of axinite crystals.

Metaphysically, axinite brings out the positive. It is a stone of personal growth that encourages surrender to needed change. Axinite promotes friendship and deepens intimacy. In healing, axinite is said to be helpful in adrenal disorders and bone fractures.
