Ex. Clarence Bement; American Museum of Natural History
This is an old, rare, locality piece. Seldom do you see large sphene crystals from the Alpine deposits in Switzerland or Austria. This is a perfect twin, very gemmy and with sharp form. Formerly in the collection of Clarence Bement, which was purchased by financier JP Morgan and donated around 1910 to the American Museum of Natural History. Joe Budd Photos.
