PostPosted: Jan 15, 2022 16:23    Post subject: Re: Collection of Michael Shaw  

This morning I decided to photograph a couple of specimens that I collected nearly 60 years ago on the Buckwheat dump at Franklin, New Jersey. I wanted to show the mineral in natural light and a corresponding photo under shortwave UV light. I was generally pleased with the photo of the willemite/calcite specimen but was unable to reproduce the vivid yellow fluorescence that the esperite showed. After spending nearly 30 minutes trying to correct the color with Photoshop, it still came out too green.
