Fluorescent rocks are some of the most fascinating geological specimen encountered in Petrology, that is, the study of rocks. When UV light shines on a fluorescent object, the energy of that light pushes the electrons within that material. This "push" causes the release of a small amount of light energy in a different wavelength, which is what causes these rocks to glow!
This kit includes 9 unique fluorescent specimen, each of which glows under the power of the included UV light pen. A magnifying glass for closer inspection is included, as well as a streak plate for conducting the Mohs hardness test on your rocks! The detailed instructions include a couple of experiments, as well as a handy rock identification key.
Enjoy these fascinating, luminescent rocks with the whole family; makes an excellent gift for the aspiring geologist in the family.
