Yellow / Green Titanite (Sphene) Crystals on Chlorite and Metamorphic Matrix


Yellow/green gemmy titanite crystals set in a sparkly chlorite matrix.

This titanite is from the famous gemstone-bearing granite pegmatites of the Shigar Valley of Gilgit-Baltistan in northern Pakistan.

Titanite is a calcium titanium nesosilicate mineral, CaTiSiO₅ As a gemstone, it is callled sphene and is popular with collectors because of its high dispersion (sphene is one of the few minerals with a dispersion higher than diamond). Specimens of sphene with high clarity can display a strong, colorful fire when light is passed through them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you combine shipping for multiple pieces in an order?

Yes, we are happy to combine shipping for multiple pieces. Our pieces have different weights, however, and that makes it a bit challenging to combine shipping as you are ordering, but you will only pay the actual combined shipping cost plus a $1.00 handling & material fee. We will refund any overages as soon as we create the shipping label (thst's the point when we know the actual price for shipping).
