This is an interesting piece! Sharp, lustrous titanite crystals almost totally cover magnetite crystals and, I expect, were derived from the magnetite which presumably titaniferous! A little bit of a magnetite crystal is exposed on one side. Lots of elongated fluorapatite crystal sections are embedded in the titanite and magnetite. Fine looking specimen of an unusual association.
