DescriptionLARGE FLUORESCENT PORCELAIN AGATE SPHERE
Burro Creek, Wickenburg, Mohave Co., Arizona, USA
Although many regard the Franklin area of New Jersey to be the source of the finest fluorescing minerals in the world, there are many other localities that produce first-class examples of this natural phenomenon. An example of that point is this beautiful sphere fashioned from a large chunk of brecciated Porcelain Agate from Burro Creek, Arizona. The 'Porcelain" sobriquet stemming from its soft shades of white and gray. Exposed to shortwave ultraviolet, however, the attractive arrangement of veins unexpectedly bursts into vibrant life showing vivid bolts of bright electric green against a dark background. A spectacular specimen of a sphere of large size, it measures 8½ inches (21.6 cm) in diameter and is attractively presented on a short, polished freeform base of the same material.
