Franklin & Sterling Hill

If you are looking for something in particular, please contact us.

Please note that a special lamp (filtered short-wave UV) is required to see the fluorescent colors of these rocks.  It's worth it to get a good lamp.
An ordinary "blacklight" will not work for most of these minerals.

Unless otherwise noted, multiple photos are different views of same specimen.

Willemite & Calcite - Franklin, NJ.  A pair of "red and green" FL pieces.  This willemite has a more moderate or subdued FL in SW, probably because it dispersed within grains of tephroite.  This would be good for displaying next to specimens that would otherwise be overpowered by the intense FL of willemite.

The larger specimen is somewhat thin;   it also appears to have a hairline crack (about one-third of the way in from the right edge;  not visible from the front), but this does not go all the way through the rock.  It should remain intact as long as  it's not dropped.

Specimen sizes:  
3 3/8" x 2 5/8" x 1" (smaller); 
4" x 3 1/2" x 5/8" (larger).
Ship wt. 2.5 lbs.

#F556 .... $29.00

Size approx. 5 x 3 1/2 x 2 1/4 inches
Ship wt. 3 lbs.

#F544 ... $36.00
