I took a few photos of some of our most colorful fluorescent minerals. The rocks were lit with a shortwave UV lights.
They are all from the Franklin, New Jersey area and like all minerals from that region, are extremely colorful!
The different colors indicate the different minerals:
- Barite, cream
- Calcite, red
- Clinohedrite, orange
- Franklinite, red
- Hardystonite, blue
- Willemite, green
