The specimens listed below are from a recent excavation by Mineralman in the
CALICO MOUNTAINS, MOJAVE DESERT, SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, CA.
Mineral fluorescence is much more vivid in person than can be captured with a camera.
 
The minerals in these specimens from the Calico Mountains exhibit the following fluorescent color response:
  • Colemanite- Blue/White and highly Phosphorescent
  • Calcite- Yellow/ Cream
  • Howlite- Purple/Blue

Fluorite on Celestite
These outstanding specimens of FLUORITE belongs to a VERY SMALL sub-group of fluorescent minerals. The fluorescence is due to hydrocarbon impurities incorporated within the crystal lattice of the FLUORITE during formation of the crystals and not to other elements as is the case with the vast majority of fluorescent minerals. A large pocket was discovered in November 2006 and specimens were acquired by me in January 2007. See the Dec. 2007 MINERALOGICAL RECORD vol.38, number 6 pages 478 & 479 for a discussion regarding this unique find. These are the finest Fluorite specimens to come from this location in over 50 years of mining!! These fine FLUORITES were photographed under a 50watt longwave but are equally fluorescent under short wave UV. The phosphorescence is remarkable under shortwave UV, lasting several minutes (with a dark adapted eye) and noteworthy under longwave UV. Superb example of this very RARE fluorescent FLUORITE on CELESTITE are now available. Add one to your collection now while available. We may have to wait another 50 years for another unique find such as this! A rare and unusual find from the White Rock Quarry, Clay Center, Ottawa County, Ohio.
