    Very nice rocks. Have you been hunting the Lake MI shoreline? Any new finds? Gary

    I love that pink fluorescence from that calcite from Texas, is that under long wave or short wave, I wish they could make tiny uv lights like they have micro LEDs you could put into a pendant piece, make some cabs and click it on at night, that would be something cool and probably popular to. Awesome collection of fluorescent rocks you have fuss.

    Yep Gary, found many at the lake this summer (though the lake level makes it far more difficult), will post those soon.

    Thx Steve, all of these were shot with a long wave UV (365nm) light except the Scheelite which was done in short wave.
