Neon / fluorescent / phosphorescent ingredients for ceramics

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone knows of any minerals, or products that will produce a visible fluoro colour in daylight, or phosphorescent in the dark.

I want to be able to either use these as glaze or as stain for clay slip.

they do exist but they contain uranium or other rare earth metals and have specific firing techniques , mason stains have some bright yellows reds and oranges that may be the easiest way to achive them but here are some links to true glow pottery
