Fluorite on Sphalerite - China

High power LED 365nm lights are changing the fluorescent mineral hobby. Folks can now collect fluorescent minerals with a light costing under $60 and find simply beautiful specimens. This piece from China is really only a LW piece - SW and MW don't really do much. Interestingly, the sphalerite is not phosphorescent.
