Uranium glass is glass which has had uranium, usually in oxide diuranate form, added to a glass mix before melting for coloration. The proportion usually varies from trace levels to about 2% uranium by weight.
Uranium glass is recognized by its luminescence under UV light ( called also Black light) . It is not luminescent in the dark.
Uranium glass was once made into tableware and household items, but fell out of widespread use when the availability of uranium to most industries was sharply curtailed. Most such objects are now considered antiques or retro-era collectibles, although there has been a minor revival in art glassware. Otherwise, uranium glass is now mainly limited to small objects like beads or marbles as scientific or decorative novelties.
Today faceted quality Uranium beads are of high rarity and much sought after by collectors.
The Uranium glass objects are completely safe to handle as the radio activity of uranium glass objects is hardly traceable and does not exceed that of any other surrounding object of every day life


This vintage item is exceptional in all respects and is very attractive. It is a real heirloom which may be passed on to next generations and the value of which will increase a lot with years to come.
