Sodalite and Natrolite, on Ussingite - Greenland

Orange fluorescing sodalite atop a non-fluorescent ussingite. The bluish/green mineral on the top is assumed to be natrolite. Areas of the sodalite are tenebrescent. The ussingite is a gem material - which is typically non-fluorescent. When mixed with sodalite it will fluoresce orange and mixed with chkalovite fluoresce green.
