This specimen contains bright fluorescent wollastonite and minor calcite and aragonite, from the Desert View Mine, San Bernardino Mts, San Bernardino Co., California. Under short wave UV, the wollastonite shows a bright yellow/orange response and the calcite fluoresces red. A dim, but interesting multi-colored phosphorescent response is seen after short wave UV. The size of this specimen is 8.5 x 3.5 x 1.5 cm, and it weighs 46 grams.
The Desert View Mine is notable because it hosts a suite of rare minerals, some of which are found at only one other known location- Franklin, New Jersey.
