Black Light Sensitive Czech Glass

Color #: 61100 - Milky Peridot

Black Light Czech BeadsVisit the whole other world that lies beneath a black light. Fluorescent glassware and beads have been highly sought after collectibles for generations. Some of the most vivid glass canes give off bright green or muted yellow/orange hues depending on the minerals that are used during production. Colors such as jonquil and chrysolite are well known in the industry for their glowing properties; however, there are many other beautiful glass canes that may surprise you. We will be featuring these colors individually over the next few months. There are many names for UV sensitive glass including "Vaseline glass", "Uranium Glass", and "Custard Glass". Each has a slightly different definition. If you would like to know more about this phenomenon I recommend the websites listed below, or try searching Google for "Vaseline Glass".

Black Light Czech BeadsPlease note that only the pressed, fire polished and machine cut beads on our website are known to fluoresce. Some batches may glow more than others. If you are interested in purchasing these beads for their UV sensitive properties, please let us know so that we can double check them under the light for you.
