Tugtupite, Analcime, Chkalovite from the Taseq Slope, Greenland


A fantasticly rich "eye" specimen of tugtupite on an analcime/lujavrite matrix.  The cherry red tugtupite encircles chkalovite forming "eyes", while the analcime provides a backdrop of blu/wht contrast.  Areas of green fluorescence also due to chkalovite it is believed.  Multi-color specimens like this are among the most sought-after Greenland fluorescent minerals.  Bottom pics show the same specimen under LW where only the tugtupite is fluorescent.
