My favs are the teeth on White River mammals.  FYI, I picked up a 51 black LED flashlight for $10 incl shipping from China.

@Uncle Siphuncle I agree about the White River teeth, here are a couple of mine.

The grin of the Oreodont named Lucinda, from snolly's old prep series of this Merycoidodon gracilis. The glow in person is a greenish-yellow.

Very neat fossils! :D Love the ammonite!

I'd never actually thought that there was such a thing as 'fluorescent fossils'... Some fascinating stuff!

I have a piece of Fluorite that will fluoresce if you take it outside on a sunny day! It's really cool.

Here in central Pa where many of our fossils are calcite replacements flourescent fossils aren't uncommon. Its just the calcite. I have  collected some beautiful fluorite but none that glows. I lw/sw check everything before making it parking lot gravel.:muahaha:
