(this is a cross post from LPF where I have been selling these)
I've assembled some of the highest quality products I could find from across the web that can be used with 405nm lasers and black lights, and I've put them together into a kit for anyone interested in playing with some fluorescence without having to buy bulk quantities from 3 or 4 different sites. The glow compounds are sourced from a few different places which I found to have the brightest of each color. After selling these locally to friends, someone suggested I try selling them online as well so here it is:
Each set works with any 405nm laser pointer as well as with black lights or even sunlight, and comes with the following:
1 Gram UV Color Changing Powder
2.5 Grams Green Europium Glow Powder
2.5 Grams Blue Europium Glow Powder
2.5 Grams Cyan Europium Glow Powder
3 x 9/16th" Uranium Glass Marbles
1 mL Ultra Concentrated UV Fluorescent Dye (approx 10-20 gallons when diluted)
The Europium glow powders are the newer formulation of glow in the dark, not the kind you find in old glow in the dark toys. When fully charged it will glow many times brighter than regular glow in the dark pigments and for much, much longer. (see my avatar for a sheet of paper coated in this which can be drawn on with a laser)
The color changing powder can be drawn on with a 405nm laser pointer or exposed to sunlight and will fade back to white after about a minute - note that this one does not glow in the dark. All of these can be mixed into paints, plastics, or adhesives to create UV sensitive materials.
The 3 uranium marbles everyone is probably familiar with, they have a faint yellow/green hue and will fluoresce very brightly when exposed to UV light.
[new] The UV Fluorescent Dye is 1 mL of concentrated liquid, the suggested mixing ratio is 1-2 drops per gallon of water, it has a very light magenta hue when diluted and fluoresces a rich golden yellow color when a 405nm beam is shone through it (see pictures below). It also responds to 532nm lasers with a slightly more yellow shade. Perfect for projects such as a Laser Lava Lamp.
$13.00 for everything shown (except the laser)
$7.00 extra for a 405nm Newwish style pointer with power meter printout

Accurate listing and very prompt shipping. Glass and glow powders are awesome quality! I haven't tried the dye yet but it looks highly concentrated. Getting some of the very fine grain color changing powder out of the container was a little tricky, but it works great and if super fun! I hope to order more soon. Great job, A+ and thanks again!
