In 2005/6 we discovered a pocket of tugtupite mixed with what we believe is a special variety of chkalovite. The combination resulted in vibrant red fluorescent tugtupite encircling a beautiful pearly white chkalovite. One of the geo-tour members promptly nicknamed this material Greenlandic "Margarosanite".
On the second side are spectacular tugtupite crystals. These pieces are rare, not too many make its way to the market. Tugtupite crystals were almost unheard of prior to our discovery of this deposit. Keep in mind, tugtupite is really found nowhere else in the world, in spite of reports from MSH Canada and Kola Russia, none ever make it to market.
Bright eyes of blue/green chkalovite balance out the assemblage for a truly rich and spectacular specimen. Under longwave the tugtupite shows off its salmon fluorescence.
