A NEW exhibition, One Thousand Points of Light, opened to the public today at the National Museum of Scotland in Chambers Street.

Part of the Edinburgh Art Festival 2012, the first exhibition by artist Melvin Moti features light-reactive minerals and rocks that absorb UV light.

Museum curator of mineralogy Peter Davidson is pictured inpsecting a piece of Calcite and Willemite rock which fluoresces under ultra-violet light.
