A cluster of tabular, light brown, sublustrous to glassy axinite crystals, generally opaque at the base and transparent at the termination. Iron-dominant and manganese-dominant axinite are both listed for this locality at Mindat, albeit without any supporting analytical data. In the absence of analysis for this specimen, we can only label it as axinite, and not axinite-(Fe) or axinite-(Mn). From what was probably a limited find in 2014 or 2015.
