Sodalite, var. Hackmanite, Pein Pyit, Mogok, Myanmar

Mogok is known for fabulous gemstones and gem crystals. Here are specimens of really nice fluorescent, tenebrescent sodalite, var hackmanite, that also occurs there. There is a light coating on some of them that may possibly be zeolite, opal or a caliche-like deposit on some of the specimens that glows a blue-white under U/V. Most of the black inclusions that you can see are graphite crystals.
