This Week's Rock of the Week
The Rock you see below is actually a piece of Selenite, which has a wonderful transparency. The blacklight really punches up the colors. The striped color rays surrounding the center star are a blue invisible ink that only appears under a blacklight. Notice this piece in regular light, and you can see the interference turquoise that covers the surface. The pointed dots surrounding the outside are made with Tulip™ glow paint. It is as volatile as Elmer's glue after it is applied. The slightest movements can cause it to ooze. The nozzle to the bottle gets clogged very easily too.
