16 Things That Glow Under Black or Ultraviolet Light

16 Things That Glow Under Black or Ultraviolet Light

Fluorescent rocks include fluorite, calcite, gypsum, ruby, talc, opal, agate, quartz, and amber. Minerals and gemstones are most commonly made fluorescent or phosphorescent due to the presence of impurities. The Hope Diamond, which is blue, phosphoresces red for several seconds after exposure to shortwave ultraviolet light.

Ultraviolet Lights. For the fluorescent mineral collector there are three useful wavelengths of ultraviolet light; Long wave, Mid wave, and Short wave. A few minerals fluoresce the same color in all wavelengths, others fluoresce in only one wavelength (usually SW), and yet others fluoresce different colors in different wavelengths.

Fluorescence is a phenomenon that causes a mineral to "glow" in the within the visible spectrum when exposed to ultraviolet light.Minerals that exhibit fluorescence are known as "fluorescent minerals". Fluorescent minerals contain particles in their structure known as activators, which respond to ultraviolet light by giving off a visible glow.

These collections contain labeled rock and mineral specimens that will fluoresce under ultraviolet (UV) light. Some of the specimens will respond to long wave UV light (LW 315-400 nm), some will respond to short wave UV light (SW 100-280 nm), and a few will respond to both short wave and long wave UV light.

Fluorescent minerals are often called "Glow Rocks". They glow, or fluoresce, under ultraviolet light and emit longer wavelength visible light (Stoke's shift).Invisible UV light from ordinary black lights, LW LEDs, or shortwave mineral lights cause this fluorescence (also called luminescence).

Note that the response of most fluorescent minerals to UVB (medium-wave UV) is not described, although some "black lights" emit UVB as a component of broad-spectrum UV. Ultraviolet C (or UVC or Short-wave UV light) spans the wavelength range from 280nm down to 100nm, although wavelengths below 200nm are strongly absorbed by the oxygen in air.
