WORLD CLASS MUSEUM QUALITY 1.59 CARAT SPHENE TITANITE.
AN ASTONISHING SPECIMEN
Earth mined in Brazil, this extraordinary gemstone must rank highly in the top ten gemstones I have ever had the privilege of seeing. It is beyond beautiful - it is perfection.
No picture can possibly do justice to this fantastic Sphene Titanite. It is 1.59 Carats of glittering fire. Sphene's are reknowned for their 'Rainbow Spark' and have always been a great favourite of serious gemstone collector's.This example literally dazzles the eye with it's fiery rainbow sparks !
I find it impossible to attach a value to this exquisite Sphene - it is that spectacular. It would not surprise me to see it change hands in the professional gem world for over R35,000.00.
The Carat weight is 1.59 Carats, and the clarity is VS.
The dimensions are: 7.73 x 6.01 x 4.27mm
If the winning Bidder is not left breathless when he/she sees this amazing gemstone, then they may send it right back to HPJ who will refund the full buying price, and pay for the return Courier.
This will not happen - of that I am sure !
Sphene is named from the greek word for wedge, because of its typical wedge shaped crystal habit. It is also alternatively called Titanite for its titanium content. Sphene can be cut as gems although it is considered a rarity on the gem market. It brings to the table a fire greater than diamond and unique color shades. Sphene can form nice crystals and can make a lovely addition to the collection of a collector who appreciates different crystal forms.
