Sphene is a collector’s gem and is particularly rare. Sphene, also known as Titanite, has rich body colors, strong trichroism, and fire that exceeds diamond. Sphene is one of those magical gems that can really enchant you—the best faceted examples display brilliant fire and flash three different colors. Sphene's relatively low hardness (5 to 5.5) and distinct gemological properties make it a desirable piece for collectors as well as adventurous jewelry enthusiasts. Although softer than many popular gems, sphenes can make wonderful jewelry if set and maintained properly. Its double refraction enables the light that travels through the gem to be split into two directions, creating an exceptional array of colors.
