This hand specimen consists of a piece of "Hackmanite", a variety of Sodalite. It is massive and basically white in color, though a few areas show a definite pink tinge. This pink tinge is actually caused by exposure to shortwave ultraviolet light, and will likely fade in white light. While bathing the piece in UV light, it glows a bright pink color.
