Phlogopite on Sodalite - huge crystals, Afghanistan

A large plate of phlogopite crystals on a matrix of sodalite (hackmanite) from Badakshan, Afghanistan. The front surface is covered with phlogopite crystals, while the matrix is a mix of sodalite and feldspar. The sodalite is very phosphorescent and tenebrescent. Nice and bright.
