This very unique necklace holds 19 uranium glass beads on stainless steel chain. Four 20x9mm arrow beads, three 9mm faceted rondelle beads, and twelve 4mm round uranium glass beads make up this necklace. Chain measures 22 inches in length, with two of those inches being adjustable. Lobster clasp closure.
This necklace comes gift wrapped, with one UV keychain light included.
**Uranium glass contains minute amounts of uranium dioxide, and glows under UV black light. Uranium glass level of radioactivity varies by piece, ranging from less than 1 percent to up to 25 percent by weight, but there is no recognized danger to handling or using uranium glass, according to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Uranium glass beads are even further diluted than the glass in glassware, as it is mixed with other glass to make the beads. Under 50CPM is normal levels of background radiation. Under 100CPM is not thought to have any health effects. Outside air in the United States of America averages around 25CPM. I check all my pieces with a geiger meter to make sure they clock in at safe levels.**
