Benitoite is a barium-titanium-silicate mineral rarely found in serpentinites that are hydrothermally altered. Benitoite fluoresces when exposed to short-wave ultra violate light. It usually appears bluish white or light blue under UV light. The rarely found white Benitoite fluoresces under long wave ultra violate light appearing red in color. It is the Official State Gem [...]
Autunite is a greenish yellow fluorescent mineral. The crystals of this mineral often occur in tabular square form as it has a tetragonal crystal system. The uranium content causes this ore to have radioactive properties. This mineral tends to dry out forming meta-autunite-I, which in turn can be heated and converted into meta-autunite-II. Due to [...]
