COMMENTS

Also, primes that do not divide any Lucas number.  T. D. Noe, Jul 25 2003
Although every prime divides some Fibonacci number, this is not true for the Lucas numbers. In fact, exactly 1/3 of all primes do not divide any Lucas number. See Lagarias and Moree for more details. The Lucas numbers separate the primes into three disjoint sets: (A053028) primes that do not divide any Lucas number, (A053027) primes that divide Lucas numbers of even index and (A053032) primes that divide Lucas numbers of odd index.
