Sodalite exhibiting a slight tenebrescence, bright orange LW, slightly dimmer SW. Under white light areas of the sodalite have a bluish hue, we're not sure of the reason. These areas are less fluorescent, possibly an unidentified mineral that is a homogenous blend with sodalite. All sits on a bed of lujavrite.
The area these pieces were found is also unusual - a spot in the middle of the Taseq Slope, no other major deposits found in the area.
