Note: Sphene, also known as Titanite, is rarely found cut as a gemstone but is prized for its beautiful colour and extremely high dispersion (or “sparkle”), which exceeds that of diamond. Stones over 5 carats are rare, and care must be taken when wearing sphene-set jewellery as the mineral has a relatively low hardness of 5 1/2.
