        Per Wikipedia:
        ------------ snip -------------

        Triboluminescence is an optical phenomenon in which light is generated
        when material is pulled apart, ripped, scratched, crushed, or rubbed (see
        tribology) through the breaking of chemical bonds in the material. The
        phenomenon is not fully understood, but appears to be caused by the
        separation and reunification of electrical charges.

        *** Separation and reunification of electrical charges? Sounds like
        static to me....
