Black lights used to be expensive for collectors of fluorescent minerals and roller rinks. Today, the cost has come way down. This program by Jim Lobb, a local collector, will introduce you to the colorful world revealed by the ultraviolet lamp. Why are some minerals so vibrant colored and others don’t show any change? Where can I buy a cheap and safe black light? Can I find fluorescent minerals, or should I buy them? They make a great holiday gift for budding scientists. Free program, though pay-to-park applies.
