I found a regular old rock in northwest Missouri, Buchanan county, St Joseph, Mo in a creek bed in a glacier field. It looked like it may have something in it. I dissolved the (3 times larger) rock with toilet bowl cleaner (I think that contains HCl). It fluoresces pink under a black light, there's some phosphorescence around an edge.

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to the site. It looks a nice mineral, but maybe you can give us some info as a more precise location to search for regional geology on USGS. Also, try to put the piece on a table with no backgroud noise and a rule for scale, trying to focus well the picture. We wrote this guide if it helps to realize what info do we need. earthscience.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/124/… $\endgroup$ – user12525 Jun 4 at 18:16
