Agrellite from Kipawa, Québec, Canada

Shown here is a truely gorgeous specimen of agrellite (bright pink fluorescence under shortwave and midwave UV, best midwave; weak orange fl longwave UV), albite (dull red fl SW UV), calcite (green fl), red eudialyte (non fluorescent) and black amphibole (nf). This large cabinet-sized specimen is one of my favorites; it has well-balanced fluorescent colors, displays very well and looks good in daylight due to the presence of gemmy red eudialyte.


Shown fluorescing under shortwave UV (254 nm) in the first picture, and, respectively, midwave UV (306 nm), longwave UV (365 nm), visible light, and then the opposite side in the same sequence.
