This rare Titanium-bearing member of the Vesuvianite group is only found in a few worldwide localities, and the most desirable specimens are those from the type locality in Russia. This specimen features a pair predominant, good quality, sharp, euhedral dark blackish-green color prismatic tetragonal crystal measuring 1.5 cm. aesthetically sitting on serpentine matrix. The crystal is in excellent condition, and this is one of the better cabinet sized pieces of this material that I have offered in a while.
