DVH Terlingua Fluorescent Calcite Pink Triangle Bead Pendant 37x25x18 (2639) - DVHdesigns

DVH Terlingua Fluorescent Calcite Pink Triangle Bead Pendant 37x25x18 (2639)

$ 98.98

I made this matte finish bead out of a calcite crystal from Terlingua, Mexico.  Not only does this calcite fluoresce pink under long wave Ultraviolet light, it also has PINK TRIANGLE zoning of the crystal structure.  It's sort of like the "phantom crystal" effect, it's just in this case the phantom, or crystal growth zone in the formation, is creating a pink triangle pattern.  Measurements in the listing title and a 2.5mm drill hole. CORD NOT INCLUDED.

Calcite is a soft and sort of fragile stone, so treat this with care. Not all calcite is fluorescent!  The calcite fluoresces a bright PINK under ultraviolet light. I took the fluorescent picture of the stone using a Convoy 365nm Ultraviolet (UV) Flashlight from Way To Cool to illuminate the bead and the other picture under a regular LED daylight bulb. The UV light is what makes the calcite "glow" and how brilliant it is will depend on the quality of the UV light you look at it with.  

Fluorescent minerals show up best under a QUALITY ultraviolet lamp. A simple long wave "black light" bulb will not do any fluorescent mineral justice. Don't be fooled by cheap knock off ultraviolet flashlights. You get what you pay for. I highly recommend the quality UV lamps available at Way To Cool at fluorescents.com.
