Two Skies obtained this extremely rare material from Dr David Anderson, who had the specimen for over 30 years in his private collection.  Tugtupite was first officially discovered in 1957 in Greenland, close to the town of Narsaq, by Professor Henning Sørensen. The name tugtupite is derived from the locality where the mineral was first found. Greenlandic Inuit already knew of this mineral for centuries, and named it reindeer ("tuttu") blood.
