Are Black Lights Fluorescent?

Black Light
Are Black lights fluorescent? It depends on what type of black light referred to. A standard fluorescent black light gets it's name from the color spectrum of ultra violet. It's called a black light because the light emitted by the light bulb is coming only from the ultra violet side of the spectrum.

Fluorescent Lights are beautiful when observed under the right lighting. If Fluorescent Lights are observed in the dark or near dark they seem to be purple, actually and not black. The radiation that is emitted by black lights is considered to be fluorescent and can be seen when white surfaces are introduced near the black light.
