Default Re: Glows

So, I have always thought of glows as a crystaline structure that grows in areas without oxygen (some some other gas in the Pern atmosphere) and, when it is exposed to oxygen the compound it is made of breaks down, producing an chemoluminescent reaction. This is a similar concept as Firestone, which, after digested by a dragon, generates a gas that reacts with oxygen in the atmosphere to make an exothermic reaction, resulting in fire. I have also always though of glows as being a blueish color, but making a soft white light. I think that the could possibly only be formed under swaps by some chemicals from the swamp seeping underground to create new compounds, similarly to will-o-wisps, or something like that. Please tell me what you think of my theory.
