ARAGOSTRONZIANITE UV FLUORESCENT BOCCHEGGIANO - 11 x 8 x 6 cm
Specimen of Aragostronzianite from the famous Pozzo Ballarino in Boccheggiano from Tuscany. The rock shows intense pink-red fluorescence under long wave ultraviolet rays. As can be seen from the photos, in addition to the Aragostronzianite there is another mineral in mineralogical association that has fluorescence in green (which I currently have no information). Very rare sample with beautiful and bright colors.
