Greenland Fantasy Rock - Tugtupite, Sodalite, Analcime, Chkalovite

Fantasy Rock is a nickname we came up with for wildly fluorescent combination specimens from the Taseq Slope in Ilimaussaq, Greenland. On this piece the analcime (bright blu/wht) dominates, with cherry red fluorescing tugtupite sprinkled around, some of it encircling a magenta fluorescing chkalovite. A few areas of orange sodalite round out the assemblage. Both sides are shown in the big pics below under SW, with LW, natural, and the size following.
