Cerussite in 405 nm laser light

Cerussite: Mibladen, Morocco.

A small crystal group of which the faces have been etched slightly. It fluoresces in long wave UV but becomes VERY sexy indeed in violet laser light. In this particular "coherent" lighting method, the edges of the crystals stand out prominently. This are stacks of 50 photo's.
