Fluorescent 4 Terlingua-Like Calcite
Red Calcite Terlingua-Like from Mexico
This “Terlingua-Like Calcite” has bright blue fluorescence under SW ultra-violet light and has strong blue phosphorescence. When switched to a LW ultra-violet light the specimen changes color to a bright pink fluorescence but will not display any phosphorescence. We were able to pick up many old stock mineral specimens from a rock shop that closed down after 33 years in business. This specimen was in a box marked “Terlingua-like Mex” which we list as it was labeled.
This very nice specimen fluoresces excellent colors with amazing phosphorescence. Photos taken with a Nikon CoolPix L-1 under a Way Too Cool 254 nm SW 9-Watt Lamp and a 365 nm LW 9-Watt Lamp in a blackout display box.
Specimen weighs 9.6 oz or 0.6 lbs (272g) and measures 3 x 2.4 x 2 inches (7.8 x 6 x 5 cm)
