    Uranium-laced , glass marbles and glassware under shortwave UV light. Uranium was long-used as a colorant for glass before the hazards were known.

      Hedgewalker. I used to live 10 minutes from Franklin Mineral Museum and was a frequent visitor. I obtained much better finds at Sterling Hill Mine, of which I am still an active member.
