  1. Fluorescent Exogyra by Daylight.jpg

    From the album Fossil Flourescence

    In the daylight, this is an articulated Exogyra shell from the Cretaceous New Egypt Formation as it runs through Mullica Hill, New Jersey. I brought it home because it had an interesting bit of vivianite replacement covering half the surface of one valve. When I brought it home, I noticed some white material inside the cavity of the broken shell. I figured it might be calcite, which sometimes fluoresces. So, I pulled out my UV lamp. To my shock, not only did the white material glow an interesting powder blue color, but the majority of the one valve glows an intense, bright red! Meanwhile, the other valve doesn't glow at all. Scroll right to see what it looked like in the dark with the UV lamp.

  3. Fluorescent Bacculites.jpg

    From the album Fossil Flourescence

    I was playing around with the UV lamp in my lab, seeing what might unexpectedly glow this afternoon. This was a nice surprise. It's an internal mold of Bacculites sp. with sutures that fluoresce orange under 345nm UV light. Bright orange like this usually indicates calcite, a mineral that makes up fossil shells and some modern ones, too. Between the mud-filled chambers, the shell was preserved while the exterior of the cone wore away. The shell material was either calcite to begin with or, more likely, began as aragonite (same chemical compound as calcite, but different crystal structure and glows yellow instead of orange) and changed over millions of years to the more stable configuration of calcite. Meanwhile, the mud looks like it may have a little bit of some fluorescent minerals in the mix, but it's mostly a daylight-only affair. The blue may be some residual glue from a label. This specimen is from the late Cretceaous Pierre Shale Formation in South Dakota.

  4. Fluorescent Silicified Cypress Wood

    From the album Fluorescent Petrified Wood

    One of Delaware's many mysteries is the petrified wood found near Odessa and Smyrna. The general consensus is that is cypress wood of some kind and it was buried under Pleistocene sediments. However, the origin of the wood and the age have yet to be figured out. Some say Miocene. Others say as old as Cretaceous. There are no other co-occurring fossils in the deposit to give any clues. The photo on the right was taken using a 395 nm UV lamp.
  5. a freind went for a fossil hunting in China's Beipiao, a well know lagerstatte of jehol biota ( early cretacous/late jurasic) . By chance he used a home UV light to check his pieces, just to find that one of them become fluorescent and revealing much more details. this should be a tyipcal Lycoptera davidi or sinensis

  22. Fluorescence in Fossils

    While taking pics of some calcite under long wavelength UV light, I noticed a glow coming from my one and only Fox Hills ammonite (thanks to @RJB). I thought it was rather beautiful. All of my fossils that have calcite preservation fluoresced nicely.
