Axinite is a group of brown to violet-brown or reddish-brown minerals that sometimes occur in gem quality. Axinite is distinctive for its strong vitreous luster when polished, and its interesting pyro- and piezo-electric properties. Axinite is also popular with mineral collectors due to its unusual crystal structure.
Axinite deposits are found in Brazil, Mexico, Russia, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and the USA.

Easy to see the gemstones you are buying, easy to see prices and shipping.
I love GemSelect, personally. I browse their site almost daily to see all the new stones available. Their selection is pretty amazing. The quality isn't always the highest and the cut of the stones isn't always perfect. But for the price, and if you look hard enough, you can find a real gem, so to speak.
I would recommend to a friend because of the quality of the products purchased. The gemstone quality is very high and the gems purchased are beautiful. Any friends interested in having custom jewelry made would definitely be recommended to the site. Also, every shipment is handled with care and I am very pleased with that.
