Description of ๐Ÿ’ก Brilliantly Illuminating: Frey Scientific 3-Piece Fluorescent Set

Fluorescent set is comprised of a good, thorough range and number of rock specimens for study and examination of properties, similarities, and differences. Each mineral becomes fluorescent (glowing) when exposed to either long-wave or short-wave ultraviolet light. Numbered and keyed specimens are stored in a compartmentalized box for storage and transportation. Fluorescent mineral set is excellent gif for rock enthusiasts, earth science classes, displays, and educational demonstrations.

Some reviews complain that the stone labels fluoresce so brightly that you can't admire them. That's true, but it's easy to turn the bricks over so the label isn't showing. This is not possible with aโ€ฆ

Number stickers are glued with cyanoacrylates

Number stickers are glued with superglue. It took me about an hour to soak them in acetone, cut them off with a chisel and when they still left a too light bruise due to clinging paper I had to either file them or rip them off a bit with a chisel or pliers around Remove glue and paper residues that cause light blue stains that destroy the natural look and beauty. They may serve "educational purposes," but that doesn't justify ruining their aesthetic by sticking super glue and paper on them. Aโ€ฆ
