Fluorescent fossils, minerals & equipment
Fluorescent minerals were added to our site in 2009. This seemed like a logical addition since, because of the replacement minerals, some fossils will fluoresce. This line will be expanded as items can be obtained. We added ultraviolet lights to the site early in 2010.
We are currently limited to using only two photographs for the individual specimens being offered for sale. The first one you see will be the one which offers the strongest fluorescence. Whether it is long or short wave will be indicated in the discussion of the specimen at the lowest level (after you click on the image or the product name). If only one type of light will fluoresce the specimen or a second fluorescent image is not available, then a photo of the specimen in normal light will be used at the lowest product level.
Due to current limitations of the web site we are unable to show each of the minerals available under normal light, long wave ultraviolet light, and short wave ultraviolet light. We will attempt to compensate for this short coming by providing a link to another page below which will give you photographs of similar specimens under the three lighting conditions.
