UV Light and Fluorescent Minerals

The variety of Willemite found in Franklin, NJ is an excellent example of a mineral that is both fluorescent and phosphorescent, but there are many others. Calcite is often phosphorescent. Applying heat to some UV-charged minerals (by holding them briefly under a hot water tap, for example) will make the phosphorescence even more dramatic.

The fluorescent mineral on the other hand will immediately go dark. Thermoluminescence and triboluminescence are also two different things. The first is the ability of a mineral to emit visible light when heated. The second is the ability of a mineral to glow when it is crushed, scratched, or otherwise acted on by a mechanical force.
