Axinite is typically considered a collector's stone. This is a beautiful pinkish and straw color gem with an "Oval Brilliant" cut. Depending upon the light under which it's viewed, the stone can show flashes of golden, yellow-green and a clove brown hue. If you flip the gem over and view it through the pavilion, you can actually see a SLIGHT BLUE COLOR (see the second photo) Axinite rarely forms in crystals that are gemmy or thick enough for faceting. To find an Axinite gem over 1 carat is very impressive. These stones are very rare considering that rough is extremely difficult to find not to mention that this area of Pakistan which produced this material has been dry for years. I was able to purchase this gem from an old source who had some leftover stones in their inventory. It is difficult to find Axinite in clean stones, so inclusions are accepted by most collectors and dealers. This stone is virtually eye clean, which is AMAZING for Axinite from any locality. The gem shows trichroism as it does a slight color change when rotated in different directions. Axinite is actually hard enough that it can be worn in jewelry, though it is a bit brittle so it is most recommended set in a pendant A great rare gem for any collector of these type of stones.
