Gibson Road East (Titanite Hill), Tory Hill, Ontario
Size: 2.3x2.0x1.8 cm


This specimen features a well-formed, wedge-shaped dark brown titanite crystal with another crystal intersecting it perpendicularly. Titanite's dark coloration and high luster make it difficult to photograph; please view the video for a better look. The specimen comes from the modern-day classic locality Gibson Road East, colloquially known as Titanite Hill. Discovered by local collector Steve Smith around 1995, this well-known spot for local rockhounds is about 100 meters north of Gibsons Road. Since its discovery, the area has been exposed to reveal a much larger expanse, consisting of large crystals contained in or weathered out of calcite veins and pods in gneiss and amphibolite.
