Emerald Green Sodalite from Greenland

Obscure "Emerald Green" Sodalite found on the north shore of the Tunulliarik Fjord, right above "Sodalite Beach" and where the bright pea-green sodalite is found. Only one large boulder of this material was found, and was worked by the US expedition led by Mark Cole over a couple of summers. Very bright and gemmy. No tenebrescence is observed.
