Tugtupite, Analcime, Chkalovite from the Taseq Slope, Greenland

A fantasticly rich "eye" specimen of tugtupite on an analcime/lujavrite matrix. The cherry red tugtupite encircles chkalovite forming "eyes", while the analcime provides a backdrop of blu/wht contrast. Areas of green fluorescence also due to chkalovite it is believed. Multi-color specimens like this are among the most sought-after Greenland fluorescent minerals. Bottom pics show the same specimen under LW where only the tugtupite is fluorescent.
