Got my UV light!!!

Recommended Posts

Just received my UV light from Amazon. Pleasantly surprised! And the haul of JABOs I got last week, lights up like a Christmas tree.

Yeah ... Jabos have some nice glow.  Comes from the Fenton Burmese cullet they used.   At least much of the brightest glow does. 

If you pull out the brightest ones, then more colors start to emerge from what remains.  




Those are some pretty cool warriors in the top post.

I use these lights on jars of buttons sometimes and very rarely you get fluorescent buttons that just look great. I had the thought of trying to fill an entire jar with them but I had so few among my hundreds of buttons I figure it would take thousands to get all fluorescent ones.

Once, I spent so much time with my blacklight sorting marbles in a dark closet that I gave myself a tan on one wrist from where I held the UV light over it.  

P.s., you took some nice pix, Dave.  It's not easy to get the glow to pop in a photo, but you did it.

I may be able to fill a half pint jar with all the mibs I have. 🤔

I don't think _very_ common.  I've had at least one.  As simple as it was, It stood out among my others.
