Fluorescent Rocks and Mineral Rarities

Rare minerals such as chkalovite, leucophanite, catapleite, villiaumite and dozens more add to the allure of this remote "geologist's mecca". In the past several years this area has become a world-class locale for fluorescent minerals and deeply tenebrescent sodalite hackmanite. I specialize in fluorescent minerals from this remote locale

Fluorescent Minerals - Franklin Mineral Museum

The Franklin-Sterling Hill area has more fluorescent minerals than anywhere else on Earth, and nothing is simple at this locality. This checklist is not a treatise, so the descriptions are condensed and simplified. The most common fluorescent response is listed first. The UV wavelength or wavelengths listed for a mineral are those under which its fluorescence is brightest; “FL red SW” means that the mineral

Mineral Gallery - The Fluorescent Minerals

The fluorescent minerals are those that emit visible light when activated by invisible ultraviolet light (UV), X-rays and/or electron beams. Certain electrons in the mineral absorb the energy from these sources and jump to a higher energy state. The fluorescent light is emitted when those electrons drop down to a lower energy state and emit a light of their own. Although most collectors do not have

Luminescence, fluorescence and phosphorescence of

Pink or yellow fluorescence with a greenish phosphorescence is suspected to be caused by organic activators. Green may be due to interstitial inclusion of mineral activated by uranium (often hyalite). Stokes (1852) was unable to observe the fluorescence of calcite. In 1859, Becquerel found that fluorescent calcite contained up to 2,7% Mn. In 1867 he studied calcite with his new phosphoroscope

Fluorescence and Phosphorescence: Mineral Properties -

Phosphorescence is a phenomenon exhibited in several fluorescent minerals where the mineral continues to glow even after the UV light source has been removed. The glow slowly fades, and after several seconds (or minutes in a few cases) is no longer visible to the eye. Only few minerals phosphoresce; phosphorescence is only noted as interesting mineral property, rarely as a diagnostic identification property. Certain mineral
