Articles, Studies, and Papers

The Glow Notes blog contains numerous posts about our hobby, but some content is not easily added as a blog post.  These pages contain articles, studies, and scientific papers covering fluorescent minerals.

Most of these papers will be in PDF format, or perhaps Powerpoint presentations, or other formats which are not supported in the blog.
