COMMENTS: Just phenomenal material. First picture is under normal light only and second picture is under UV light only.

Wow! OK, here is a very unusual & rare gem of gems. Two Vaseline Balls or spheres (Uranium Balls or spheres) we have here. Vaseline gems or balls (spheres) are natural glass that contains uranium in very minute amounts, but enough so it glows very strongly under black light with an intense neon green color (as the picture displays). Under normal light this material displays a beautiful yellow-green color tone. These make excellent gems when cut for jewelry or as is that would really stand out in the night clubs and on the dance floor. One of a kind gem or balls (spheres). ***The NRPB (National Radiological Protection Board) tested this material as very low & quite safe under normal uses. Grinding or abrasive polishing of Vaseline glass cannot be classed as "Normal Use", and should always be left to the professionals as so.*** These Vaseline Balls/Spheres (Uranium Balls) was produced from Wilkerson Glass Company. We used to have in stock Vaseline gems (faceted stones) that were cut and faceted by renowned gemologist and lapidary Mike Giammatteo. They SOLD out pretty fast, as they are a favorite among the younger generation and gem enthusiasts. Pretty fascinating material I do say.

Happy shopping! We are not new in the gem trade or auctioneering. We offer all natural gemstones, gem carvings, & facet/cab/specimen grade gem rough, with full disclosure of any enhancements known.
