Titanite and Apatite
near Ankarafa Village, Vohemar-Ambilobe, Madagascar
Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 5.0 x 3.5 cm
This is a very unusual specimen with a gorrgeous, twinned, very limey-green crystal floating on matrix. Moreover, as a bonus and a rarity, it has an associated white apatite crystal. It is aesthetic and is a very, very rare example of a good sphene matrix; let alone it is even more crazy rare to have a sideways-displayed twin showing full twin plane just right where you want to see it as a viewer AND still show 2 freestanding terminations!
