This rare Uranium Glass Rosary is hand beaded using vintage, faceted, uranium glass beads. The “Our Father” beads are slightly larger (8mm) and a bit deeper green than the “Hail Mary” beads (6mm.) This variation is more traditional and gives it a beautiful, pale green color variation in natural light.
This Vaseline Glass Rosary has a Madonna centerpiece and traditional crucifix. Size is approximately 20 inches long with a 1 3⁄4 inch Crucifix. Your purchase will come boxed with a cute little organza bag, ready to give as a gift if you choose.
Uranium glass, sometimes called Vaseline glass was extremely popular during the 1950 – 1970s. When exposed to a black light it glows all sorts or eerie colors. It is not your regular glow-in-the-dark.
Uranium glass is glass which has had uranium added to it for coloration. Uranium is a naturally occurring, dense radioactive metal and is used as fuel in nuclear reactors. Since the amount is so low, this uranium glass rosary is completely harmless. The proportion is usually very low, about 2-10 percent.
Rosary, item good quality just as ordered
I was really happy to get this along with a couple other items. I’ve worn it out a few times and get compliments each time. Shipping was fast and I will be buying gifts from here in the future!
