Sodalite Crystal w/ Winchite

Sodalite from Afghanistan is often very tenebrescent (see animation). It darkens to a deep bluish/purple relatively quickly, but does not fade as rapidly as Greenland pieces when subjected to a bright UV-free light. These pieces are also often very phosphorescent (2nd pic below) and fluorescent orange under longwave.
