Tugtupite and other fluorescents

Tugtupite from Greenland is probably the most valued of all fluorescent minerals.

We are particular about our Tugtupite, in that we select the deep red kind direct from the source!

We work directly with the Greenlanders who mine it themselves to get you the best value.

We have tugtupite in (a) display quality specimens (b) cut material ready to turn into cabs / other shapes or (c) ready made cabs.

We also have quality New Jersey Willemite, Calcite, Zincite: all specially and individually selected (yes one at a time!) in NJ. Please enquire! We also have other fluorescents like scheelite, eucryptite, powellite, fluorite that are specially selected for their fluorescence.

See UV lights for UV equipment.
