Fosforescentie (in de algemene betekenis) zien met het blote oog:

UV Type Kleur Intensity Observation Frequency
Lange golven(365nm): Geen waarneming met het blote
Midden Golven (320 nm): Geen waarneming met het blote
Korte golven (254 nm): Gelig wit Middelmatig


Sometimes associated with : hyalite (fluo green SW), VLASOVITE (fluo yellow-orange SW), feldspath (fluo red SW), red eudyalite and brown mosandrite;


Some SW 4 color specimens from the Darai-Pioz Glacier, Tajikistan. have white fluorescing Baratovite, Pink fluorescing Agrellite, Magenta fluorescing Microcline, and an unknown fluorescing Green (hyalite?).

Activator en spectrum:

Voornaamste Activator: Mn2+

Andere activatoren: Fe3+ , Eu2+ , Ce3+ , Sm3+ , Dy3+ , Nd3+ , Gd3+ ,

Pieks in het spectrum (nm):

Mn2+ replacing Ca2+: Large band peaking at 580nm
Eu2+: 410nm
Sm3+: 560, 597, 602, 640nm
Dy3+: 475, 485, 580nm
Fe3+ replacing Si4+: 740nm

Ref. sample: (555), (561), 566, (593), (600), 604, (612), (639), 646, 661, 698 and 706 nm

Agrellite, Canada. Excitation: laser 405nm. Col. G. Barmarin; Spectre: G. Barmarin

Commentaar over activators en spectra:

A brief but distinctive orange flash is seen before the magenta luminescence (typical of Mn activator?).
RE elements (RRE2+ and RRE3+) replacing Ca2+ are suspected as activators. Also Mn and Fe.
Fluorescence: pink LW after Robbins and other authors, clearly visible with pointer-laser @405nm.
As with other minerals activated by RRE, the shape of the spectrum is strongly influenced by the resolution of the spectrometer because RRE have a lot of very narrow peaks very close from each other. If the resolution of the spectrometer is not sufficient, the pikes are agglomerated in larger entities.


There is sometime a green fluorescent mineral accompagning agrellite. It is sometime reported as thorium activated calcite (???) that will glow green sw and mw whitish green lw and will phos under all 3 waves. Sometime thorite coating are invoqued to explain the green fluorescence in specimens from Kipawa.

Albite fluorescing red SW is also often present.
