"Fantasy Rock" from Greenland - Tugtupite, Sodalite, Chkalovite, Natrolite, Analcime - 5+

"Fantasy Rock" is a nickname given to a fantastical assemblage of rare minerals found on the Taseq Slope, Ilimaussaq Complex, Greenland. This specimen consists of cherry red tugtupite, blu/wht analcime, pearly white chkalovite, green natrolite, and orange sodalite. The tugtupite has formed around the chkalovite creating "eyes" of striking red and white. Much of the natrolite is radiating habit, and the sodalite areas are very tenebrescent.
