Twisted Square Uranium Glass Beaded Necklace
An ultra-glowing, beautiful, piece!
Two 14.5mm square uranium glass beads, two 11mm square uranium glass beads, three 8mm bi-colour faceted round uranium glass beads, twelve 6mm bi-colour faceted round uranium glass beads, twenty-two 5mm round faceted uranium glass beads, and thirty-eight 4mm round AB polished uranium glass beads make up the uranium parts of this necklace. There are ten non-uranium glass beads present on the necklace. Many of the beads on this necklace are new old stock, meaning they are not currently in production anymore, but we're purchased in new un-used condition.
Necklace measures 18.5 inches end to end, when laid flat and open. Sterling plated toggle closure.
This necklace comes gift wrapped, with an 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.**
