Radioactive Uranium Glass Rod


under normal light


under Ultraviolet light (Blacklight)

Clear Uranium doped glass rod that contains approximately 4.5% Uranium 238 ( by weight ). Unlike other Uranium glass items, these rods are Borosilicate glass (heat resistant, similar to Pyrex glass). It has a coefficient of expansion of 33.
A very unique glass that can also be used in lampworking and glassblowing projects.
This small amount of Uranium is added to the glass while it's still in the furnace and in a molten state.
As the Uranium dissolves into the red-hot glass, it takes on the tell-tale pale green color of Uranium Glass.
Because of the added Uranium in the glass, the rods glow wickedly bright under Ultraviolet light ( Blacklight ).
The small amount of radiation that the marbles emit will also register on sensitive Geiger Counters.
The rods does not emit high or dangerous levels of radiation, and is completely safe to handle. Rods measure about 9" in length and are 1/4" in diameter. Rod comes with a certificate of measured radiation.
