Featured here is a beautiful 2-7/8" fluorescent Calcite and Fluorite sphere for collection, or home decor. This material is from the "Big Spar Mine" in AZ. The lot weighs about 1 pound and 2 ounces. This sphere fluoresces beautiful red under (SW) and blue under (LW). The first two photos are SW, the next three are LW, and the last six are daylight.
We use a 36 watt fluorescent lamp specifically designed for viewing displayed fluorescent minerals, it has SW and LW modes. Our minerals are photographed dry, and no type of photo enhancement is employed, as it appears under our lamp is how it photoed and is presented on our listings. We display shortwave photos first, then long wave photos. If the mineral does not fluoresce under one those waves, it will be noted in the listing. These items will not fluoresce as shown with a poster lamp. They will fluoresce as shown if you are using a fluorescent mineral lamp, designed for that purpose. We do our best to represent the true colors of our materials. Please remember there are many factors to consider, such as how your computer monitor displays the photos. Also SW minerals will not fluoresce with most of the UV flashlights.
We have a large selection of fluorescent minerals, for fluorescent hobbyists, and fluorescent mineral spheres as well. When you purchase an Endless Circle sphere it is a one of a kind art work that will fill your home with the beauty and sentiment that an original artwork brings. It is crafted by two loving Artisans, not mass produced in a huge shop. Fluorescent mineral collecting is a hobby that requires specific equipment to view the fluorescence. A black light doesn't work for this purpose.
