Apatite Crystal from Mt St Hilaire, Canada - Red fluorescence under Longwave, Unusual.

Here's pretty specimen - a small apatite crystal of about 2 mm across, on a matrix of albite. Came from Mount Saint Hilaire. The apatite shows different responses to different UV-bands but the feldspar only fluoresces dim red under SW.
