A small glass jar of fluorescing SMALL tugtupite chips. If you expose the chips to sunlight for a long time, you can notice a slight darkening of the pink color.

*NOTE: The glowing red images are the fluorescent images shown under shortwave UV light. You need a fluorescent UV light to see this effect. The stone is a natural white/pink under regular lighting/sunlight*

These chips range in size from 1mm-8mm. They are randomly selected from a pile of Tugtupite chips - there is no guarantee on specific size. The heart container is about 1" x 1" x 1". The chips in the photo are just to show an example - you will not receive the exact same chips shown in the photo, but they will be of similar quality/size.

"For ages, the Inuit of Greenland have understood the power of tugtupite. Legend has it that lovers can cause the stone to glow fiery red just from the heat of their romance. The brilliance and vibrant colors announce the intensity of their love." 

Today, in metaphysical & spiritual healing lore Tugtupite (also known as the reindeer stone) is marketed as an emotional stone. It can protect one from negative energy of many kinds by wearing or carrying the stone, and is often sought for this shielding property. It is also helpful for removing energy blockages, and to clear the aura. Tugtupite is reputed to strengthen romantic relationships, and expand the love and sexual experience, and cure depressions. Physically tugtupite is used in general healing, purifying blood, to stimulate hormone production, and increase fertility. Tugtupite opens and clears the heart chakra, and will also activate and integrate all the chakras. - pretty powerful inert rock (if that's your thing)!

Long Lake Zinc Mine - Ontario Canada

The sun was slowly setting so we made dinner and relaxed a while (amazing how slowly the sun sets when you're waiting for it). Once it got dark collected started in earnest. The first thing you notice is the bright blue hydrozincite everywhere on red calcite. All of the small rocks glow. We proceeded to check out the large boulders laying around on the surface and quickly determined that dozens of prior collectors had done the same. That's why they're still lying around.
