How purple are we talking? I visited the Bell Hill fluorite mines in Utah two years ago, which you can see in this picture : https://www.flickr.com/photos/drgw223/42474153820/
And one of the underground shafts with the veins running through the walls: https://www.flickr.com/photos/drgw223/44233769692/in/photostream/
Where the veins of mineral reach the surface, the ground was fluorescent. It's a surreal experience in person. So I echo the sentiment, I dare you to model it!
