From the mine owners: This specimen was harvested at the 80 ton "Big Dig" during August 2009. The calcite fluoresces brilliant red under SW, and is interlaced with striations of green willemite. Willemite phosphoresces long after the SW has been turned off. Fluorite fluoresces best under MW and LW, and is a bright purple color. Aragonite fluoresces light blue to white under SW and phosphoresces white. There are over 150 minerals at the Purple Passion Mine.
