Fluorite
Formula: CaF2
Fluorescence: Phosphorescence - Easily visible green phosphorescence (charged with SW UV lamp), dropping off quickly in brightness over 2-3 seconds to somewhat dim, remains visible for at least several minutes. The phosphorescence seems to overpower any fluorescence in SW UV as the grains appear to fade in when the lamp is applied.
