Sodalite (Hackmanite) and Gem Phlogopite - Afghanistan

The first pic shows this specimen under shortwave UV, while the 2nd pic shows the longwave view. The gallery provides other views, closeup and an animation of the slight tenebrescence.

The phlogopite is quite gemmy on this piece and bright under shortwave. The sodalite crystal is very phosphorescent.
