|Tonic water and glass in normal light|
|Uranium glass in UV light|
In these circumstances, it was only a matter of time before I acquired a UV light and started to play..
Today was the day it arrived. And it's a weekend, so I was always going to be having some gin, so I'd have an excuse to play with tonic water...
It turns out that my glasses are uranium glass...
And tonic water does glow in the dark.
And you know what? Drinking a G'n'T out of the glass, you can get some very pretty effects!
|Radioactive Gin and Tonic|
I understand that the level of radioactivity involved in Uranium glass is so low it doesn't present any health risk (unless you grind up the glass and inhale it)
