A Rainbow of colors!

 

The skull is gorgeous when seen outside because the fluorite takes the light and allows it to flow inside and turn into thousands of uncountable particles that are refracted inside turning it into a show of amazing colors.

This huge skull is created from one solid piece of fluorite and weighs in at 145lbs, 16.9 inches long and the piece of fluorite used to carve the skull cost $3000.00!

Learn Something Fun: It can be fluorescent under ultraviolet light (UV) and, like its normal light colours; its fluorescent colors are extremely variable. Typically it fluoresces blue but other fluorescent colours include yellow, green, red, white and purple. We purchased some fluorescent fluorite it was green under lights and then turned a wonderful blue when taken outside.
