Scapolite Crystal - Badakshan, Afghanistan


 Gem scapolite from Afghanistan is not really a bright fluorescent specimen, but bares mentioning.  This piece is best under SW - no idea what the blu/wht fluorescence is.  Under LW it's a dim orange.  This piece is very very slightly tenebrescent (you have to squint to see the color change).
