Leucophanite with Tugtupite - Ilimaussaq, Greenland

Leucophanite is only found in a few places around the world - most notably Norway, Canada (MSH), and Greenland. It is quite rare from Greenland. Responds best to midwave UV - the main pic below. The gallery below that shows the other views, along with size and detailed locality.
