Sodalite var. Hackmanite

  • Product info

The variety Hackmanite is a sulfur-rich form of Sodalite, and is prized for its lovely pink color and strong fluorescence under long or under short-wave UV-light.
Hackmanite has a unique optical property called tenebrescence, in which its color will be more saturated after exposure to ultraviolet light and then eventually fade.
