Item Description

A good-sized and gemmy twinned crystal of Titanite (Sphene) from this cool REE locality in Pakistan. This specimen is one of the few Titanites I have seen from Zagi Mt in this size range. It has a classic "wedge"-shaped form with sharp faces, good luster and nice gemminess/translucency. The crystal is contacted, but is still well-formed. To top it off, the color actually shifts from a golden hue in halogen lighting to a greenish color under fluorescent lights. Certainly a good representative Titanite specimen from this contemporary classic locality in Pakistan.
