Product Details

This 11 Watt shortwave and longwave UV lamp is used for the observation of mineral specimens that fluoresce when exposed to short and longwave ultraviolet light. This affordable lamp is recommended for the novice that is just getting started with fluorescent minerals. Best results with this lamp are at a distance no higher than waist level. 

The shortwave light is a filtered 11 watt fluorescent tube that emits the shortwave UV at approximately 254nm. The longwave light is a filtered LED located on the side that emits longwave UV at approximately 365nm. 90% of fluorescent minerals require a filtered shortwave UV light. The optical filter is a specialized piece of glass covering the fluorescent tube that blocks most visible light, but lets specific wavelengths of ultraviolet pass through. Please remember that UV light is not visible to the human eye! The reason for the filters is to block out as much visible light as possible, so only UV wavelengths pass through!

Because UV light can be very harmful, UV blocking safety glasses should always be worn to protect eyes from damage. We include one pair of safety glasses made of polycarbonate with purchase of the lamp. The glasses filter 99.9% of harmful UV radiation. Avoid UV exposure to the eyes and skin.

A sample of small fluorescent rock shards and a stamp (as shown in the 2nd picture) is included with every order. Also try it out with the Fluorescent Rocks Mineral Collection!
