    Fluorescence: Gems and Minerals Under Ultraviolet Light Manuel Robbins A great book, originally published in , which, first, gives the explanation of why minerals fluoresce and the second part goes over some famous locations across the world. Ultraviolet Light and Fluorescent Minerals: Understanding, Collecting and Displaying Fluorescent Minerals Thomas S. Warren . Fluorescence is the emission of light by a substance that has absorbed light or other electromagnetic is a form of most cases, the emitted light has a longer wavelength, and therefore lower energy, than the absorbed most striking example of fluorescence occurs when the absorbed radiation is in the ultraviolet region of the .

    Many minerals fluoresce when viewed with ultraviolet light due to the presence of trace minerals called activators. The unique ability of activators is due to their electrons being spaced at just the right distance from the nucleus to absorb UV light and emit it in visible Size: KB. A major section of the book provides an extensive catalog and description of the fluorescent minerals and their collecting localities. A final chapter concerns a group of interesting laboratory experiments with the nature of light, mineral fluorescence, and crystals. Color plates include 48 excellent photographs of minerals under ultraviolet light.

Photographing fluorescent minerals in UV light zburival | | Ultraviolet photography might seem complex, but it’s a piece of cake if you have the proper UV lamp.Ultraviolet (UV) is a form of electromagnetic radiation with wavelength from 10 nm (with a corresponding frequency of approximately 30 PHz) to nm ( THz), shorter than that of visible light but longer than radiation is present in sunlight, and constitutes about 10% of the total electromagnetic radiation output from the is also produced by electric arcs .The fluorescent minerals are those that emit visible light when activated by invisible ultraviolet light (UV), X-rays and/or electron beams.

Certain electrons in the mineral absorb the energy from these sources and jump to a higher energy state.
