Scorpions are known to glow when exposed to certain wavelengths of ultraviolet light, due to the presence of fluorescent chemicals in the cuticle. One fluorescent component is now known to be beta-carboline. A hand-held UV lamp has long been a standard tool for nocturnal field surveys of these animals. Fluorescence occurs as a result of sclerotization and increases in intensity with each successive instar.
Exposure to ultra-violet light will cause scorpions to fluoresce and make them easier to spot, even in bright ambient light.
Other uses: Counterfeit money detection, charging glow in the dark items.
