The following notes supplement a recent paper (1937) on the crystallography of axinite. The question of symmetry was purposely not broached in the original paper since the issue seemed unclear. The new forms and confirmatory measurements have only recently become available. The remaining points refer to more or less inaccessible observations which had escaped my notice. For calling attention to the two neglected settings of axinite by Fedorov full credit is due to Professor Wartan N. Lodočnikow of Leningrad, who was also kind enough to refer me to his paper (1927) describing twinning and a new form on axinite.
