DESCRIPTION

Use this fluorescent mineral kit to watch fluorescent minerals change color under black light!

This is an excellent starter kit for any rock and mineral enthusiast. If you love fluorescent rocks and minerals, you'll love how this set of 10 mineral specimens fluoresce into bright greens, reds, oranges, and all sorts of different colors under "shortwave" ultraviolet light, peaking at a 254 nm wavelength.

More minerals in nature fluoresce under shortwave UV light than longwave UV light, so the included ultraviolet lamp (254 nm) is useful for expanding your own fluorescent mineral collection! In addition to the fluorescent mineral specimens (such as calcite, chalcedony, talc, and willemite), this fluorescent mineral kit comes with a 60-page booklet with tips for identifying fluorescent minerals. Simply provide four AA batteries for your shortwave UV lamp and let your exploration of fluorescent minerals begin!

Note: UV light is the part of sunlight that causes sunburns. Never look directly at UV bulbs and wear UV filtering goggles if using for extended periods.

You can also order the shortwave light separately.
