Fourth of July, 1993: Collecting fluorescent calcite and fluorite under a full moon at the Hull Mine, Castle Dome, Arizona   The mine dumps at the Hull Mine contain fluorescent specimens like these: mostly red calcite with blue fluorite. 


The next day we had to get going very early. We were headed up north to collect zunyite.
