Fluorite and Calcite on Quartz (2 color fluorescent)
Guanajuato, GTO, Mexico

A 7.5 by 5 cm plate of drusy quartz with frosted green fluorite octahedrons to 0.9 cm and creamy calcite rhombohedrons to 2 cm. Colorful in daylight, this specimen is even better under UV illumination. The fluorite fluoresces lavender and the calcite yellow in both long and short-wave ultraviolet light (photo available on request). Only the largest calcite has damage on the edge of the plate, the rest are intact.
