REFERENCES ON ILĺMAUSSAQ
Ilímaussaq has been blessed with a team of researchers from Denmark, Russia, Germany and beyond who’ve published an extraordinary volume of knowledge over the past 40+ years. Most of which is in print form only—little appears on the web. I'd especially recommend exploring the “Contributions to the mineralogy of Ilímaussaq” series cited in the references below.
Fine overview of Greenland's mineral deposits with attention on finds of
Contains a good (if short) introductory section on Ilímaussaq, a species list, and
bibliography. Little mention of fluorescence; one UV photograph.
