      Chemical Luminescense in Powder  Bookmark   

What the hell is this!!??
Upon playing with the all favorite type of honey powder in the dark, the powder has a flame blue glow every time its rubbed together. Caps being filled were first notice to give out a light glowing spark everytime they hit the powder. Upon further investigation, a spoon was rubbed against the powder which produced moderate trails of luminescense that lasts about 2 seconds. Could this be residual acetone being ignited within the crystal producing a miniture explosion? Or has the DEA put a 'tracer' in oil (just kidding about the second part)

I haven't heard of triboluminescence ( occuring with MDMA.HCl, but it occurs with LSD tartrate. Either that actually is the case, or the powder just had some static electricity built up.

Same effect was observed upon opening squeeze bottle mayonaise. I won't give out the mayonaise source, you must pm me on that.  Our folks at the DEA could make that watched soon. They have those plastic coated paper safety seals. When pealed off it emitted a very weak light at the glued part.
