V25-5TVTugtupite, Chkalovite, Analcime

Multiple photos available
Kvanefjeld, Ilímaussaq complex, Narsaq, Kujalleq, Greenland, Denmark

This specimen is an excellent example of the typical habit for tugtupite and chkalovite. "Eyes" of chkalovite are often surrounded by tugtupite. Chkalovite can be used as a locator mineral - whereever there is chkalovite, tugtupite may not be far away.
Size 3" x 4", in the collection of Mark Cole.

FQV-CVRUssingite, Chkalovite, Tugtupite, Sodalite

Multiple photos available
Tugtup Agtakôrfia, Tunulliarfik Fjord, Ilímaussaq complex, Narsaq, Kujalleq, Greenland, Denmark

Shortwave Fluorescent Image
The matrix is deep purple gem ussingite (non FL). An "eye" of snow white chkalovite (fluorescent blue/white, SW) is rimmed by a thin vein of tugtupite (red SW). This is a classic habit; tugtupite is reported to form as a replacement of chkalovite. Accompanying sodalite glows a bright orange, and is nicely tenebrescent.

QDT-PKJPhlogopite, Calcite

Multiple photos available
Koksha Valley, Khash & Kuran Wa Munjan Districts, Badakhshan, Afghanistan

Translucent phlogopite on calcite matrix. Calcite is fluorescent a bright orange under midwave (MW) UV, while the phlogopite fluoresces a bright lemon yellow under shortwave (SW). The blue cast is due to UV light reflections.

11R-29WLeucophanite

Multiple photos available
Langesundsfjorden, Porsgrunn, Telemark, Norway

Leucophanite from Norway is an exceptionally beautiful fluorescent specimen. This photo shows a piece appx. 2 1/2" x 1 1/2" of solid leucophanite under midwave UV. The reaction is strongest under MW, but also respectable under SW.

9NP-E0NTugtupite, Analcime

Multiple photos available
Taseq Slope, Ilímaussaq complex, Narsaq, Kujalleq, Greenland, Denmark

One area on the Taseq Slope produces specimens of tugtupite that appears as veining in an analcime matrix. Quite often there are small vugs containing micro-crystals of tugtupite as can be seen in this specimen. The crystals are 1mm to 2mm, and the piece is 3" x 2 1/2". See accompanying full size photos and fluorescent photos.

JEA-DDVTugtupite

Multiple photos available
Taseq Slope, Ilímaussaq complex, Narsaq, Kujalleq, Greenland, Denmark

Tugtupite crystals, found by a member of the 2003 Greenland Geo-Adventure Tour. Many of the crystals are over 4mm and are the largest crystals found to date. Veins of tugtupite, in a matrix of analcime crystals, are occasionally found with vugs of micro-crystals, but only from a certain spot on the Taseq Slope. Only 3 specimens were collected from this find.
