ARAGOSTRONZIANITE UV FLUORESCENT BOCCHEGGIANO - 19 x 16 x 11 cm
Great specimen of Aragostronzianite from the famous Pozzo Ballarino in Boccheggiano from Tuscany. The rock has very intense red-pink fluorescence under long wave ultraviolet rays. On the one hand the specimen is completely covered, while on the other the Aragostronzianite is partially covered by cave concretions that are black with UV rays and lead to a high color contrast. Very precious, rare sample with beautiful and bright colors.
