Fluorescent Mineral Photo Gallery

Minerals that are fluorescent under shortwave, midwave, and/or longwave UV from around the world.  Each database entry shows white light photos along with UV photos, as well as localities and descriptions.  Use the index to search for specific minerals, or fluorescent minerals from a region.   If this page is entered via the index, the results are filtered.

FINDING MINERALS
 

Ten sets of images are displayed at a time.  Browse the archives for past pics, or just keep hitting "Older" to load more pics. 

You may filter the view of the archive to find minerals in a certain geographic area, or those that respond to specific wavelengths or have other characteristics.  If the view is filtered the results show only that selection.

Famous localities are listed as separate geographic areas under Region View.

Using the search box above you may find specific minerals, mines, or localities.
