Fluorescent SW blue/white Tremolite Nellie Ulmer Quarry - Rockland , Maine
Bid on this specimen of fluorescent tremolite from the State of Maine. This piece is loaded with acicular (needle like) crystals that fluoresce a blue - white under short wave ultra-violet. It's a very interesting specimen under normal light but is equally as fascinating when exposed to short wave U.V. Rockland has been a source of limestone mining since the 1800's. Along the Old County Road there are dozens of abandoned limestone mines where one can collect both fluorescent calcite and fluorescent tremolite. This specimen was collected from the Nellie Ulmer Quarry in November.
