World of Fluorescent Minerals
By Stuart Schneider. Schiffer Publishing, Ltd. 2006. This 8 ½” x 11” heavy paperback book has 192 pages with 825 color photos.
Stuart is a lawyer who has written 17 other books on collectibles, including flashlights. This is his second book related to fluorescent minerals. It has 162 pages just dedicated to photos of minerals. Each mineral specimen includes one photo taken in daylight and then one or more with the specimen fluorescing. In most cases, the photos are under SW but some are under LW, and MW. He has specimens from the Franklin and Sterling Hill, NJ area, specimens from other states, and specimens from around the world, listed by country. Included in the book is a price guide for each specimen (I think his prices are too low)! The color photos make the book a necessary addition to the library of every fluorescent mineral collector.
