- Hydrothermal: alpine type veins
- Anglesey: titanite also occurs as a secondary phase within basic gneisses (amphibolites), in central Anglesey, forming large rhombic crystals and less distinct crystal aggregates after ilmenite (Horák, 1993).
- Prenteg, Tremadog, Gwynedd: at Fron Oleu Starkey & Robinson (1992) recorded titanite in alpine-type veins generated by hydrothermal activity.
- Snowdonia, Gwynedd: titanite is present as an accessory phase in various rhyolitic rocks in Snowdonia, Gwynedd (Campbell et al., 1987; Howells et al., 1991) where it forms euhedral crystals up to 200 μm across, with some crystals showing well-developed sector zoining, with tin-rich cores with up to 3.5 wt% SnO2 (A.T. Kearsley, unpublished data, quoted in Bevins, 1994).
