ID: CC29337
An intergrown cluster of mottled light and dark chocolate brown Axinite-(Fe) bladed crystals from Meldon Aplite quarry at Meldon, about 4 km southwest of Okehampton in Devon, England. Meldon Aplite quarry and its much bigger neighbour Meldon quarry (aka British Rail quarry) were favourite collecting sites up until being given the status Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), with collecting no longer permitted. This is a good characteristic example of Axinite-(Fe) with crystals measuring up to a little over 3.5 cm.
