#69 I16c-164 Sphene psh 23.5x15.8 24.74cts ESX

  • Sphene, also known as titanite, has rich body colors, strong trichroism, and a fire that exceeds diamond. Although softer than many more popular gems, sphenes can make wonderful jewelry stones if set and maintained properly. (Mohs 5-5.5)

    Sphene comes in many brown/copper/yellow tones but its most desirable color is green. Usually, the green Sphenes are rather muddy in appearance but a deposit in Zimbabwe a couple of years ago produced the most amazing green material.

    This pear shape is from that deposit in Zimbabwe.
