Labradorite under the microscope

The flash of a labradorite is one of the most beautiful displays of luminescence one may ever see, in my opinion. I absolutely love the many colors this mineral can exhibit.

The photo to the right is of the flash of a labradorite tumble stone taken with my iPhone 14 Pro Max at 3X zoom. For comparison, you can see the photos I’ve taken with my microscope below. This takes is inside the colors of the flash.

Coming soon…

Illuminated: A Collection of Fluorescent Minerals, is a new book that I am working on. It will be available on Amazon later this year. The focus is on several fluorescent minerals in my collection with detailed information.

Email subscribers will be the first to know when it’s in the publishging stages and will also receive updates, and bloopers (photography bloopers! and more) periodically. If you would like to sign up for updates, I invite you to do so below.
