NOTE: Digital photography of minerals under ultraviolet light is not an exact science. Digital photographs do not always reflect the true fluorescent response of a particular specimen. Every effort has been made to insure that the digital photographs shown here provide a true representation of the specimen. If the digital photograph deviates from the true appearance of the specimen, a note will be included with the description explaining the difference. If you have any questions regarding a particular specimen shown here, please do not hesitate to call George Polman or email.
