Afghanite Crystals on Calcite - UV Reactive


Beautiful, Afghanite crystals on a white calcite matrix. Afghanite UV reactive under 365 nm long wave and calcite reactive with 254 nm short wave UV.

Location: Badkhsan, Afghanistan

Size: 48 x 36 x 24 mm. 47 grams

PLEASE NOTE: A 365 nm long wave ultraviolet light was used in the long wave fluorescent photos. A standard black light generally will not make minerals fluoresce (glow). A 254 nm short wave lamp is required for the calcite to fluoresce pink.

Please let us know if you would like additional information on mineral fluorescence and ultraviolet lights. 🥰. We have two different models of 365 nm long wave fluorescent flashlights available.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you combine shipping for multiple pieces in an order?

Yes, we are happy to combine shipping for multiple pieces. Our pieces have different weights, however, and that makes it a bit challenging to combine shipping as you are ordering, but you will only pay the actual combined shipping cost plus a $1.00 handling & material fee. We will refund any overages as soon as we create the shipping label (thst's the point when we know the actual price for shipping).
