A hard to find example of sphene from Madagascar, this one a twinned crystal. 

Every trip to Madagascar seems to bring certain items whose existences I am aware of, though that I haven't had the chance to see on other trips  On the first trip, I encountered a group of kornerupines-- I havent seen any since.  On the second trip it was a magnificent bismutotantalite.  On this trip, the special finds were these titanites and the topazes--  I hadn't seen any on the previous two trips, but this time there were good examples of both available.  It's part of what makes these trips fun.
