Ken's Fluorescent Minerals
Robbins's highly readable treatise for mineral collectors and mineralogists begins with an explanation of the terms and dimensions of mineral luminescence and with an overview of activators, the trace elements responsible for inducing fluorescence in minerals. To help the collector, over photos display the minerals both as they might be found in daylight and in under the effects of ultraviolet light. Written for the collector and the merely curious, this pictorial reference will enrich your collecting experience with its informative text.
It is an essential source for enjoying and identifying fluorescent minerals.
Stuart Schneider is an attorney who has written sixteen books on collectibles and antiques. A former professional photographer, he spent many hours behind the camera to show the minerals here.
Subtitled Understanding, Collecting, and Displaying Fluorescent Minerals, this book is intended to complement, rather than duplicate, other recent texts on mineral fluorescence. It differs from them chiefly in offering information not only on the fluorescent minerals themselves, but also on the nature of ultraviolet light, the lamps used to produce it, as well as useful techniques for collecting, learning about, and displaying fluorescent minerals.
