A Database including Spectrographic data!

There are a lot of websites focused on luminescent minerals and some are really great. However, as far as known none of them gives an exhaustive and systematic list of the characteristics of luminescent minerals nor information on activators and spectra. This site is made to change this: you will find inside a public free database as complete as possible with many search possibilities. There are also a few collectors working on luminescence spectroscopy as a hobby. They will find on this site a lot of reference spectra taken from the scientific literature and reproduced with the permission of the authors. We would like specifically to express our gratitude to Michael Gaft who gave us the authorization to publish many of his spectra. Other spectra were made by myself or other amateurs. More than 1000 pictures and 400 spectra are waiting you! Enjoy it!
