This is a great Titanite ( Sphene ) we were looking at. Collector's Edge did a great job, we hear, of trimming the matrix.

Really nice titanite.

Gail, where is it from? Brazil, Pakistan, another?

I got sidetracked and meant to write more about this piece, it is from Russia. We haven't gotten it catalogued yet, will let everyone know more when we do.

Matt, I never get tired of thanks, it keeps me posting things because It lets me know people want to see more, or enjoy what I have posted so far. I used to wonder if I was boring everyone, or taking too many people shots, but now I know people like to see a little bit of everything. So, thank YOU.
