4. "Surprisingly dramatic glow some minerals gave off when illuminated with ultraviolet light, or "black light." In daylight, for instance, the mineral fluorite is a drab, chalky color; in a dark room under UV light, though, fluorite glows a brilliant blue; the mineral calcite shines bright red; and aragonite gives off a neon green.
