Yes and no!  ;D Sometimes it is and sometimes it isn't. Uranium tends to be rarer

Folks like Christine can tell without a UV light but the rest of us mortals need one.  :thup:

Maplins have them if you've one nearby, or check out their webshop if not: www.maplins.co.uk.

If you actually have it, post a picture. I can usually tell Bagley from a photo, although I'm not infallible, despite what Anne says  :24:

UV lights can also be found ebay, but a Maplins one is likely to have a better quality LED. A key ring light is adequate for "shopping" purposes. Remember you must get a bright green reaction and be able to see it in daylight (but not necessarily bright sunlight). A keyring light held close to the glass will give a bright green beam in the glass. Further away it's more likely just to give a "brightening" effect.

Try with a flash or under sunlight. (Flashes aren't usually very good for glass photos, or any photos really, but it can show up a uranium glow to some extent.)

I'd suspect it's not the uranium green but I've a 50/50 chance of being wrong! :24:

I agree with Anne, not uranium, the colour is too pale and not rich enough (but I too have a 50:50 chance of being wrong).
