Sodalite (Hauyne?), Phlogopite, Calcite, Gonnardite - Afghanistan

Under shortwave - 1st pic - bright yellow phlogopite crystals on a backdrop of reddish fluorescing calcite, bluish gonnardite (supposed). Under longwave areas of what may be sodalite fluoresce a nice yellow/orange but this initial ID may be suspect. Further investigation has shown that this may be hauyne altering to gonnardite - jury is still out.
