Pink Uranium Coralene Vase

(1/2) > >>

dinklepip:
well I never!!!!  I never knew until yesterday that pink glass could have a uranium content in it :D  Don't know what made me check with my vase; not the brightest button in the box but definitely glows.  Am I guessing correctly that this is a Bohemian piece?


Lustrousstone:
Nice coralene, almost certainly Bohemian but I'd like to see a picture under UV.  Can you see the glow in daylight? Is it a really bright glow when you shine your UV light through it?
Burmese glass has pink uranium and this pink one definitely glows

dinklepip:
lovely isn't it and the flash on the camera has bought up the glass beads a treat.  I shall see how good a pic I can get when it gets dark later

Paul S.:
I'd agree about the coralene - great piece - congratulations...........although I'm not really seeing the body as pink - more a dusky cream :)

dinklepip:
nope, it's deffo pink, just the flash on the camera that's all
