Vintage Uranium Statement Necklace

$90.00

What a stunner! A true statement piece that features six huge 30x20mm oval yellow and green vintage table cut beads, seven yellow vintage 12mm faceted round beads with aurora borealis finish, fourteen yellow 8mm faceted round beads, and twenty-four 4mm round milky, modern, beads. That’s a total of fifty-one uranium glass beads! All of these beads glow under UV light.

This necklace measures 20.5 inches when laid flat, and open, from end to end. Sterling silver plated toggle closure.

Necklace comes gift wrapped, and with a keychain UV flashlight.

**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.**
