Soft Synthetic Rocks are not usually found in nature. They are subject of prototyping and imagination. The archetype comes from geology where fluorescence is due to failure or defect in the periodic structure of the solid rock. A small gap or excess in this structure can make the material to expand or to collide around the defect. Defects in structure that occur in large distance have a weak forces strength that deform the material. Slowly the defects start sensing and attracting each other. When they approach the force became stronger and at the end they couple. One defect causes absorption, the other emission.
