Fluorescent Mineral Starter Set
Wow! These minerals GLOW!!!
The Fluorescent Mineral Starter Set gives your everything you need to get started learning about the wonderful variety of fluorescent minerals and rocks! Hand-picked specimens turn shades of orange, green, purple and more when viewed with the included longwave/shortwave UV lamp. Longwave fluorescent lamps are what are often called "black lights", but it is the higher-energy shortwave UV that shows off 90% of the fluorescent minerals!
The Fluorescent Mineral Starter Set includes:
-Six fluorescent minerals and rocks: blue calcite (fluoresces orange), fluorite (purple), turritella agate (bright green fossil shells in a silica matrix), lapis lazuli (green and pink), travertine (green), and plagioclase feldspar (dark pink-purple).
-A high-quality enhanced 4-watt longwave/shortwave fluorescent lamp (batteries included!)
-A pair of UV-blocking goggles to wear while looking at your specimens
-Cornerstone's basic box with 12-cell tray so you can store and expand your collection
-Full-color image guide, numbers to make labels, and our Biblical-based geologic time scale
The lamp alone retails for $40, so this is a FANTASTIC deal on a super-fun kit!
