Probably the finest West Country specimen of Axinite (Axinite-Fe) from a private collection.  The specimen is from Belstone Mine, Okehampton, a relative small mine that worked a bedded skarn type copper/arsenic deposit on the northern fringe of the Dartmoor Granite. The excellent Axinite specimen displays a great many euhedral sharp lustrous crystals measuring to 2cm, having a bladed habit, with a rich clove brown colour. Axinite crystals are associated with whitish Actinolite and green-brown Andradite Garnet mostly as the matrix for this super Axinite specimen.
