I have heard that black lights really bring out the beauty in scorps, i ask around my area and the shop keepers ask if the light is purple which i have no idea. Can anyone help me describe black light? And is black lighting harmful to scorps or scorplings?

blacklights are UV lights... you shouldn't use them as the main source of light in your scorpion tank as they can harm the scorps eyesight.. apparently scorps cannot see this light but wen i shine it on my H.Laoticus it moves away..

Do not use a blacklight bulb to light your setup.. just get a cheap LED UV torch off ebay if you want to see the effects.. these are great for checking your scorp is still there in it hide wen you cant see it.. and also it won't hurt to shine the torch on your scorp every now and again to show friends or for observation!
