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.

    Oh Neat!! Thanks for sharing!!

    I only use one bulb so may make the difference too.....Also I have never tried to use the *Fireworks* setting on my camera.......might have to give it a whirl!!

    Again Thanks for Sharing -- and Your Uranium Pieces just POP....and that is what I love!!
