  1. Just the that this is described as Uranium glass frightens me –isn’t this just depressions glass?

    1. while it was made in the depression in most instances, it is called Uranium or Vaseline glass due the ting amount of uranium used to colour the glass green and so it glows under black or UV light. Once the explosive / fusion uses of uranium were discovered it became too expensive to use to colour glass. Not all green depression era glass is coloured with uranium. Other minerals are used to colour class, such as Neodymium for purple and Magnesium for reds/oranges etc. NOTE My understanding is that Uranium glass is not dangerous in any way as the content is so tiny.
