CaCO3
Layers of calcite found in limestone with red iron oxide and manganese oxide ( MnO2 ) making an interesting fluorescent specimen.  Under shortwave UV it fluoresces red and blue with some orange and pink. It is then phosphorescent blue. Under longwave UV it fluoresces yellow. It also shows the property of thermoluminescence glowing blue. From The Mendips, Somerset, England
