Wollastonite, Kockgruvan Mine, Skinnskatteberg, Sweden

Probably the best locale name in all of rock collecting. Here's a wollastonite that glows mustard in shortwave, dark mustard in shortwave, and not really all in longwave. However, there is some interesting greens and blues in the rock that do seem to glow in all wave lengths. Very phosphorescent, but alas, no photo. . . .Shown in SW, MW, LW and natural.
