Uranium glass and pearls are a match made in heaven.
Three 18mm pressed flower uranium glass beads, five 12mm twisted oval uranium beads, twenty-four 6mm faceted uranium glass beads, fifty-four 4mm round uranium glass beads, and four freshwater pearls, make up this necklace.
Necklace measures 18 inches end to end, when laid flat and open. Sterling plated wreath closure.
Necklace comes gift wrapped, and with one UV keychain light.
**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.**
