Mineral Description
 
healing crystals

This is Ulexite also known as TV Rock for its unique optical properties. If you place the stone on top of written text it is reflected in the top of the stone, like a TV.

You will receive a specimen that is 1 inch to 1 1/2 inch long and 1 inch to 1 1/4 inch wide. These are all 1/2 inch thick which is the optimal thickness for revealing the unique optical properties.

Special Note: Ulexite comes in 3 quality grades, low, medium and high. These are medium grade which do contain some inclusions as can be seen in the photos. The one higher grade above these is much more expensive with little to no difference in the actual quality of the rock. Please do not purchase if you want a perfectly clear specimen.

Bulk Purchase Specimen
You are buying one rock. You will receive a rock like the ones in the photographs, not the exact rock shown. The photograph with multiple rocks is so you can see the range of differences in this bulk purchase specimen listing. Photographing and listing every rock separately adds a lot in labor costs. We pass that savings on to you with lower prices and higher quality than the competition.

MINERAL DESCRIPTION

Ulexite sometimes known as TV rock, is a mineral occurring in silky white rounded crystalline masses or in parallel fibers. The natural fibers of ulexite conduct light along their long axes, by internal reflection. Ulexite was named for the German chemist Georg Ludwig Ulex (1811–1883) who first discovered it.

Ulexite is a structurally complex mineral, with a basic structure containing chains of sodium, water and hydroxide octahedra. The chains are linked together by calcium, water, hydroxide and oxygen polyhedra and massive boron units. The boron units have a formula of B5O6(OH)6 and a charge of −3. They are composed of three borate tetrahedra and two borate triangular groups.

Ulexite is also known as TV rock due to its unusual optical characteristics. The fibers of ulexite act as optical fibers, transmitting light along their lengths by internal reflection. When a piece of ulexite is cut with flat polished faces perpendicular to the orientation of the fibers, a good-quality specimen will display an image of whatever surface is adjacent to its other side.

The fiber-optic effect is the result of the polarization of light into slow and fast rays within each fiber, the internal reflection of the slow ray and the refraction of the fast ray into the slow ray of an adjacent fiber. An interesting consequence is the generation of three cones, two of which are polarized, when a laser beam obliquely illuminates the fibers. These cones can be seen when viewing a light source through the mineral.
