More Information

    (Chromian Titanite) (Titanite) (Titanite)  



Chromian Titanite, also known as Chrome Titanite or Chrome Sphene, is the chromium (Cr) rich variety of
Titanite. The chromium causes this variety to be colored intensly, vivid green. Titanite is normally colorless, brown, pale to medium green, yellow, rose-red or black. Green Titanite is not normally as intensly or vividly green as Chromian Titanite. Crystals are beautiful and faceted gems are spectacular with extreme dispersion, very high birefringence and intense green color.

The main source of Chromian Titanite is the Saranovskii Mine, Saranovskaya Village, Gornozavodskii area, Permskaya Oblast', Middle Urals Region, Russia. Associated minerals at this locality include Calcite, Chlorite Group minerals, and Millerite. There are some deep green Titanite crystals coming out of the Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Gilgit-Baltistan (Northern Areas), Pakistan but these are not Chromian Titanite and they are not nearly as vividly colored.
