Very neat combination piece showing brownish crystals of manganese rich axinite to 2.5 cm in size across the top of this andradite grossular matrix with sprays of green epidote to 5.5 cm across. In very good condition. The piece has been stabilized on the bottom side but is completely solid. (This specimen is not in my collection.)
