Brown-Green Sphene from Capelinha, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Photograph Photo
Description A large thumbnail featuring a matrix, gem Sphene, well-twinned and with excellent color. In person, the color is slightly more dark than shown here, but like many Titanites, it shifts color saturation in response to different lighting and will be a little bit more green or yellow depending on the light shown. This superb thumbnail is competition-class. It is complete all around, and unusually gemmy. This is most likely from the older finds here (pre-1970s). ex Jim White collection
Size 2.9 x 2.5 x 1.4 cm.
Locality Capelinha, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Collection Robert Lavinsky
