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 figurine is completely harmless. The proportion is usually very low, about 2-10 percent.
I love unique glass and the uranium glass virgin Mary is the perfect addition to my collection. Ordering on my mobile was clear and easy--no hiccups in the process. I'd order from Oddities again, especially if he finds a larger version of a uranium glass Virgin Mary.
It is just beautiful!
