Titanite var. Sphene
Vohémar District, Sava Region, Antsiranana Province, Madagascar
136 x 75 x 11mm

A monstrously large and remarkably complete crystal of sphene from Madagascar.  The crystal is a twin, and a complete floater with no visible point of attachment.  I showed this piece to a dealer who has been in the business for decades and interacted with numerous museums and collectors, and it was the largest complete example he could recall seeing.There is edge chipping on one of the top edges, near the center. It is visible only from one side.  Regardless, to find such a large and complete floater crystal is incredibly rare-- there were a few others from the same pocket, but all were broken or poorly formed, so I passed (I did however get a few smaller examples from a separate find, listed further below)
