Blue hauyne fluorescing an orange under longwave. The calcite is very bright under shortwave, dimmer under midwave. The gonnardite bluish white under shortwave UV light. You can see a band of yellow fluorescent phlogopite along the bottom of the specimen.
We’ve made contact with a miner in the Afghan areas and have a supply of mine fresh material. The fluorescent activators have not been studied very much from this area. It’s very unclear what is going on with most of the material from this locality, but as we get more material and discover new fluorescent minerals we will have them analyzed for proper IDs. But they sure do make for some confusing but amazingly beautiful fluorescent specimens.
