WARNING: Working with uranium and radioactive material is dangerous, and this video is for entertainment/educational purposes only. Please don't try and repeat what you see. Also, when the project is done, the waste needs to be dealt with and handled properly. On my second channel, NileBlue, I show what I did with it and you can check it out here:
For this project, I'll be making radioactive uranium glass, which was very popular 100 years ago. Under a blacklight, the uranium in it fluoresces to give off a nice green color.

  • It would be interesting if you had tested the Uranium glass you bought with the Geiger counter. I would be really interested to find out how radioactive it is, and how it might be different from the Uranium glass that you made.

  • Glass is annealed and left at a higher temperature like 900 F for a good ten hours or more and even longer you can temper your glass. It makes it a lot harder to break.

  • My family, had a couple of pieces of uranium glass - a bit strange I thought, as my Dads Navy service took him - & 2 others I knew - to Nagasaki, Hiroshima & the Marshall Islands Atmospheric tests, mean while the Brits, started testing at a place in Australia, called Maralinga. The fallout, drifted right over to New Zealand, and beyond. Should you be a wine connisure, the wines of South Australia, from the early 1950's, can be proven to vintage. Take a Geiger Counter with you, as it will still be active, as to drinkable, someone, may get desperate, one day & drink it, or do so, not knowing it's history.
