Sphene is characterized by having a greater dispersion than diamond, thought fire is usually masked by stone's body color (green, yellow, or brown)
Faceted sphene always appear a little hazy owing to their extreamely strone double refraction which is much stronger than that of zircon, so the facets on the stone pavilion appear more doubling and more easily than in zircon, and peridot. Unfortunately sphene is a soft gemstone and therefore not durable enough to wear in the jewelry that are subjected to daily use. If it were not for this, it would make shpene a great addition to the range of gemstones. Most of sphene come from Myanmar or formerly known as Burmar, Mexico, Madagascar, and Pakistan.
