This is a rare and spectacular sphene. Its origin is Madagascar, and due to its chromium content, the color is a magnificent green with major rainbow sparkle. The color for sphene is rare, and usually sphenes are included, but this one is eye clean and has major light prismatic dispersion. Also known as sphene titanate, this is one of the world's most spectacular gemstones. This gemstone has a very high refractive index, and a dispersion (prismatic effect) that far exceeds diamonds. It is commonly referred to as a "Christmas tree flash". Bright sunlight gives you the 'rainbow' color flashes. This gemstone's rare clarity, color saturation and size (above 1 carat is rare), make it one of the rarest of the sphenes.
We designed this setting that complements sphene's color and sparks with a 2-sided halo around the gemstone [one with large diamonds that face up, one with smaller diamonds that are at a 90 degrees]. We added a satin finish to draw the eye to the sparkling diamonds and magnificent sphene! Made by women for women.
