ZBS neodymium vase... with manganese or uranium?
« on: February 12, 2012, 06:15:35 AM »
It's not often that I get a piece of glass which glows... however, this morning, as I was looking at some of my glass and playing with my torch, I was surprised to see that one of my Zelezny Brod neodymium pieces shines a milky green.  Is the glow that of manganese or uranium?  

I know someone will able to enlighten me. Greatly appreciated. :)

I think it's the glow of manganese.  My ZBS neodymium fish also glows a milky green, as does my blue dolphin, only less apparently.

It's not uranium, so probably manganese
