Today's mineral collectors and fluorescent-mineral hobbyists have acknowledged their debt to Tom, honoring him . I would definitely recommend this book (1) for the newcomer to the hobby. and (2) for anyone looking for a deeper understanding of the chemistry of fluorescence.

Today's mineral collectors and fluorescent-mineral hobbyists have acknowledged their debt to Tom, honoring him with numerous awards, including an annual award to be given in his name and honorary memberships in four mineral and gem societies.

Thomas S. Warren, Sterling Gleason . Richard C. Bostwick. This book provides information on the nature of ultraviolet light, how it causes fluorescence, and mineral fluorescence as a hobby. Also included are discussions of major fluorescent minerals and mineral groups and techniques for collecting them.

Fluorescent minerals: One of the most spectacular museum exhibits is a dark room filled with fluorescent rocks and minerals that are illuminated with ultraviolet light. They glow with an amazing array of vibrant colors - in sharp contrast to the color of the rocks under conditions of normal illumination. The ultraviolet light activates these minerals and causes them to temporarily emit visible light of various colors. This light emission is known as "fluorescence. The wonderful photograph above shows a collection of fluorescent minerals. Many minerals fluoresce one color under shortwave UV light and another color under longwave UV light.

This book takes a broad look at the hobby of mineral fluorescence. It offers discussions of the major fluorescent minerals and mineral groups, techniques for collection them either on field trips or through trade and purchase, and the many ways fluorescent minerals can be displayed and enjoyed in the home. Fluorescent minerals present a puzzle. Many are of quite ordinary appearance in daylight, but when placed under the invisible rays of an ultraviolet lamp in a darkened room, they suddenly glow in beautiful colors. The transformation is so marked and so mysteriously compelling that many people instantly wish to learn more about it. This book provides information on the nature of ultraviolet light, how it causes fluorescence in a wide range of minerals, and how hobbyists can extract years of pleasure learning about them.

A well written introductory book for someone just getting into this hobby. However, I especially found Chapter IV by Earl Verbeek very informative about the chemical sources of fluorescense. Verbeek clearly explains the three types of fluorescence --- that caused by (1) an intrinsic component of a mineral (tungsate & molybdate), or (2) a trace impurity in a host mineral (uranium in quartz, chromium in ruby), or (3) defects in the mineral's crystal structure (diamond).

I would definitely recommend this book (1) for the newcomer to the hobby., and (2) for anyone looking for a deeper understanding of the chemistry of fluorescence. Tom Nier, Ph.D.(in Chemistry)

The book is very good. It combines readable science with interesting history and facts. The seller, RockBooks4Less was great! He was able to get my copy signed by a couple of the authors. Give this guy your business!

A great introduction to the fluorescent phenomena in minerals. It has peaked my interest in the subject as a rock hounder. The seller included two fluorescent samples in my purchase.

I like this book alot and the guys who wrote it are super knowledgable. There is a fluorescent Mineral Museum on the net at Wordcraft.net. It mentions this book.
