This set of 10 mineral specimens fluoresce into bright greens, reds, oranges and more under "longwave" ultraviolet light, peaking at a 366 nm wavelength. In addition to the minerals (including aragonite, fluorite, calcite, and opalite), this kit includes a longwave (366 nm) ultraviolet fluorescent lamp and a 60-pp booklet about fluorescence, with tips for identifying fluorescent minerals. You provide four AA batteries.
Note: UV light is the part of sun light that causes sunburns. Never look directly at UV bulbs and wear UV filtering goggles if using for extended periods.
You can also order the longwave light separately.
