Capturing My Fluorescent Minerals on Film


About these specimens: The incredible red calcite/blue fluorite specimens are from a mine near Castle Dome, Arizona. I bought the large one in the back but personally collected the other three in the center. The large middle piece is an amazing three-color combination. The other pieces that round out the image are: orange fluorescing halite from the Salton Sea of S. California, a yellow meionite (wernerite) from Ontario, Canada, a blue Terlingua calcite from Texas and a large green fluorescent piece of opal from Virgin Valley, Nevada. I bought all those pieces. I discovered the bright white specimen in a rock shop in Sonoma County, California - it's unidentified.
