A lovely large piece of rare Titanite. A rare find!
Titanite is also called Sphene. In 1982, the IMA adopted the official name Titanite and discredited Sphene. Titanite is named for its titanium content and its alternate name Sphene is named from the Greek term “sphenos”, which means wedge, in allusion to the typical wedge-shaped crystals exhibited by this mineral.
This piece holds some very large apple green Titanite crystals.
This weighs 1069g – 133 x 75 x 71mm
Thank you for looking
