About the images: all the fluorescent
minerals on these pages were photographed by astronomer-inventor-artist
David Mark of San Francisco, with only two exceptions (see below).
Dave used his own custom-built 3D camera to shoot stereo 3D slides.
Most of the minerals shown here are
mine except for some specimens in the group shots that belong
to my Fluorescent Mineral Society friends. I am also indebted
to the late Eric DeVroeg for two invaluable images - zunyite
And special thanks to my geologist
friend George Polman because if it wasn't for him I would probably
never have been able to go on some of the best collecting adventures.
George is a world-class collector and dealer of fluorescent minerals
who lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
