I do have a preference for port.
Do they glow under uv? That is the all-important question.

Have you been at the sherry?  ;)
That looks, from the photo, a little bit more like manganese rather than uranium.
But it could be that the uv light source isn't direct.
Lustrousstone has a Webb's Evergreen Bullseye footed bowl that is uranium, I thought they all were. ???

Not really. I suspect manganese decolourant in a high density, not Uranium.
This glimmers rather than glows.
Try the 6 feet test.
If it glows when the light source is six feet away, it's uranium.
(Although I did have a Murano pink, blue and clear swan that still glimmered faintly from 6 feet.)

Now, we know that "Evergreen" isn't always Uranium.

Sue imbibing ;) ;)                I'd agree manganese.

Appreciate these were made in the U.K., but on the Continent isn't it usually white wine they usually drink from green glasses??
