        Comments about Philips 18 Watt, 24 Inch T8 Black Light Fluorescent Bulb:

        These bulbs emit a lot of blue light in addition to UV, so they aren't suitable for showing off fluorescent effects in minerals, pigments, etc. The blue light swamps the emission from those materials. If you want the kind of black light that shows off fluorescent materials, look for BLB bulbs (unfortunately they're very hard to find in this bulb size).
