Tugtupite, Chkalovite, Polylithionite - Ilimaassaq, Greenland

Pieces from this area within the Ilimaussaq Complex were nicknamed "Kangerella" for their beauty. The tugtupite responds differently to each wavelength, is nicely tenebrescent, and very phosphorescent. The blue fluorescing chkalovite responds under all wavelengths. The polylithionite fluoresces a bright yel/grn under SW UV.
