Sphene is named from the Greek word for wedge, because of its typical wedge shaped crystal habit.  It is also alternatively called Titanite for its titanium content.  Sphene can be cut as gems although it is considered a rarity on the gem market.  It brings to the table a fire greater than diamond and unique color shades.  However its softness limits its desirability as a gemstone.  Twinning is common in Sphene and forms a classic twin shape that is found mostly in Pakistan.  The twin is shaped like a deflated, caved-in football, only with flatter surfaces.  Sphene can form nice crystals and can make a lovely addition to the collection of a collector who appreciates different crystal forms.
