Featured here is a beautiful large specimen of fluorescent Cobaltoan Calcite,from Aghbar Mine (Arhbar Mine), Aghbar, Bou Azer District (Bou Azzer District), Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province, Souss-Massa-Draâ Region, Morocco. It fluoresces beautiful red (SW). The first two photos are SW, the next one is LW, and the last four are daylight.
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. A black light will not work for this purpose.
It may be used for a great specimen, daylight or fluorescent. The dimensions of this piece are: up to 2-1/2" width by up to 4" in length by up to 2-3/8" thick. The lot weighs about 1 pound and 2 ounces.
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.
