    Antiquerose asked how I get my pieces to photograph so brightly . The first and most important thing is the uranium content of the piece.A low content piece is not going to pop brightly.
    The two bulb lamp stays next to the spot I take the pics shining down on them.The other one bulb lamp I hold over the camera,which is on a tripod,facing the piece.My camera has a fireworks setting which I find works very nicely for these pics and bright pics are the end result.
