'Trinitite', the name given to the desert sand that was
melted into glass by the heat of the first Atomic Bomb.
Early in the morning on July 16th, 1945, the first Atomic Bomb was detonated at the Trinity test site in the New Mexico desert. The nuclear explosion produced a blast equivalent of 18,000 tons of TNT and a ½ mile diameter fireball - with a temperature over 10 million degrees Fahrenheit, far hotter than the surface of the Sun. The intense heat melted the New Mexico desert sand into a light green, glass-like substance which was later named "Trinitite". The resulting crater lined with Trinitite was buried for security reasons not long after the explosion. As a result, authentic samples of Trinitite are quite rare and very difficult to obtain.
A few drums of Trinitite was saved from the burial... and this is that material.
Once it is gone, there will never be any more.
As supplies diminish, expect Trinitite prices to skyrocket.
All our Trinitite samples are tested & certified to be genuine,
and a certificate of authenticity is included with any Trinitite purchase.
