Puiva Mount, Saranpaul, Berezovo district, Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug, Russia
5,5x5x3 cm. (main Axinite 3,5×3,2×1 cm.)
Wonderful, sharp, highly lustrous and gemmy Axinite crystal elegantly coupled with a Quartz crystal. In the Ural mountains, with subarctic climate, the Puiva mount area is a remote locale with alpine-type deposit; many specimens was found between 1980s 1990s but only later did they reach world markets; this locale is a reference point for every Axinite collector but today is very difficult to obtain pieces showing a high quality level like this specimen. Custom base included.
