Large and gemmy single twinned crystal of Sphene from an uncommon locality. Although there is damage to one end, crystals from this locality always seem to have some damage, just due to the nature of the deposit. However, this crystal is as sharp and well formed as I've seen, and it is large. Crystals fromt his locality are characterized by their deep 'V' along the long edge, and on this crystal it reaches 1.5cm deep. Good golden green color too.
