with UV light. This web site has compact lights that we've had very good
luck with, despite travel via helicopter to and from the rig.  They are
expensive, however, but last a long time.  Replacement bulbs are

For slide prep in our home lab, we just go to Wal-Mart and get their $20
UV lamps, which work fine.

Hope this helps,

Dear all,
A friend of mine (not a member of paleonet) is looking for UV
lights/lamps. He is interested in observing glands and resins in
fossils. I was wondering if somebody has experience with these
techniques and could recommend brands/models, etc.. Thank you very much
