Greenlandic "Margarosanite" - Tugtupite and Chkalovite, Ilimaussaq Complex (Taseq Slope)

In 2005/6 we discovered a pocket of tugtupite mixed with what we believe is chkalovite. The combination resulted in a beautiful pearlescent red/white fluorescence. One of the geo-tour members promptly nicknamed this material Greenlandic "Margarosanite"
