SORT FILTERS - FOR VIEWING SELECTED PHOTOS IN THE ARCHIVE
(by Geography, UV Wavelength)
Filter View by Major REGION/LOCALITY or by CATEGORIES (wavelength, characteristic, etc)
Fluorescent minerals are found all over the world. Some localities produce many varieties of specimens (the mines around Franklin NJ, the Ilimaussaq Complex in Greenland, Langban Sweden, etc.). In other areas only a few different types are found (or have been discovered). This list provides a manageable filter to view these specific geographic localities.
Below the region filter you can view minerals by wavelength, characteristic, or blog discussion.
Select a link below to view images of the most significant fluorescent minerals from a particular geographic region.
Major localities are defined based on the number of minerals known to be fluorescent from those areas or countries.
Major Regions around the USA (Select one)
Note: You can view all the minerals for a specific state by selecting it here.
NOTE: The USA has more fluorescent mineral collectors than the rest of the entire world combined. Thus, the number of minerals found by region represents the majority of images in this database.
Major Regions around the WORLD (Select one)
Note: You can view all the minerals for a specific country by selecting it here.
Filter View using CATEGORIES
Filter the images displayed using one of the categories in the list. Each mineral image is stored in a category which matches the wavelength the image was shot under (one mineral may have images shot under multiple wavelengths and will be stored in multiple categories).
Some are also phosphorescent, tenebrescent, or triboluminescent. If the mineral has an image showing this characteristic it will also be listed in that category.
