Fluorescent mineral collection

Fluorescent Mineral Collection

This collection contains ten labeled rock and mineral specimens that will fluoresce under ultraviolet (UV) light. Some of the specimens will respond to long wave UV light (LW 315-400 nm), some will respond to short wave UV light (SW 100-280 nm), and a few will respond to both short wave and long wave UV light. It is an excellent kit for a student or anyone interested in fluorescent minerals and the study of how materials of different types behave under ultraviolet illumination. It is the perfect companion for the ultraviolet specimen lamp that is sold separately here.

Please note that the ultraviolet lamps or "black lights" sold in novelty stores will only work with some of the long wave specimens in this kit and the effect will be weak. A long wave / short wave lamp of proper wavelength (sold here) is needed for proper study of these minerals.

Each kit is packaged in an attractive collection box with a white plastic compartmented liner. The ten specimens range in size from about 1 inch to a little over 1 inch in maximum dimension. Each specimen has a small label with an identification number. This allows you to easily identify the specimens if they are removed from the box. The number also corresponds to an identification sheet that contains more information about each specimen. The sheet provides the number of each specimen, the name of the fluorescent mineral in each specimen, its fluorescent color, the wavelength of light (SW or LW) that activates the fluorescent response, and the geographic origin of the specimen.

A summary of the specimens in the kit is given in the table below.
