Radioactive Glass – Yes Please

Glass2

An interesting talk by Barrie Skelcher,  all about radioactivity in different types of glassware. Why uranium was added to the glass mix and how it affected the colour of the glass. Barrie showed us glass, glowing under an ultraviolet lamp and he also tested various items using a geiger counter.

An amazing variety of glass paper weights were entered into the monthly competition.
