  1. Do you mean fluorescence of bright visible light when illuminated by invisible ultraviolet light?

    Fluorescence is a property of some chemical compounds, not just elements.

    Radium (an element) glows because of radioactive decay that is always taking place. So does tritium, an isotope of hydrogen.
