Description

A very large specimen of reddish brown ferro-axinite.  It is highly likely this is from Colebrook Hill, so I have listed it as such although the label only states Tasmania as the location.  There are some minor nicks, but overall condition is good for this heavy specimen.
Note that this specimen is not the most photogenic - a genuine case where it actually does look a lot better in person!

Ex. Donald Stockton (1929 - 2016) Collection, with Don's old label.
