Calcite and Scheelite; Temp Piute Mine, Nevada

The desert Southwest has so much to offer in landscape, wildlife, geology and fluorescent rocks. Here's a nice scheelite and calcite from the Temp Piute Mine, in Rachel Nevada. The scheelite is so blindingly bright, a little post processing was required to bring out the fairly bright calcite and keep them both exposed somewhat properly. Shown in SW, MW, LW and natural. The LW shot brings out something unknown the other wavelengths don't capture.
