Interesting about the glow stones, Gary! KT wonders if they have been ceramic coated with a fluorescent ceramic finish.

OK, here are two recent acquisitions to the Royal Collection. First one is the mineral Manganapatite from Bennett Mine, Buckfield, Maine...a classic site. First picture is natural light, second picture is unfiltered SW UV 254 nm, specimen measures 1.5 inch by 2 inches.

Second mineral is microcline from Zinkgruvan Mine, near Godegard, Motala, Ostergotland County, Sweden. It is rare for feldspar minerals to fluoresce any color but red. This specimen measures 2.75 inches by 3 inches. First picture is again natural light and second picture is unfiltered SW UV 254 nm.

These pictures were taken tonight, just to prove that KT is NOT addicted to the Olympics! Enjoy!
