Here, a white matrix, appears to be composed of more than one type of mineral crystal. Under 10X magnification, some look like tiny quartz points. Others crystallize more like calcite. There are deposits of pink crystals that also appear to be calcite. On this interesting base, is a scattering of brown axinite and green epidote crystals.

These specimens were mined from the Pampa Blanca Mine, located in Castrovirreyna Province, Huancavelica Department, Peru.

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.
