Uranium or "Vaseline" Glassware
3 Swirl glasses, a Cote Baritel spoonholder and an Absinthe Mugnier carafe, all made from pale lime-green uranium glass. On the left, the same glasses under ultraviolet light, showing the characteristic flourescence caused by the presence of radioactive compounds (uranium dioxide) in the glass. Because of its mysterious greenish tinge, this type of glassware, first manufactured in the mid 19th century, was particularly appropriate for use with absinthe.
