I’ve been hoarding this stone for a long time, and knew that it was time to let It go, with my Synesthesia Collection. An extremely rare and unique Tugtupite specimen. (I have a couple pieces in my personal collection, but it it extremely difficult to come by, and is very expensive. )
Inuit legend attributes tugtupite to “Tutu” - the reindeer girl. Tutu went to the mountains to give birth to her first child, and during birth, the miraculous life-giving bloods seeped into the mountain stones and created tugtupite. Thus, it is known for life, romance and fertility.
For ages, the Inuit 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. (But for the rest of us, you can see it’s fiery glow under the black light. )
