This trinitite atomic glass is the color green with minor black. Trinitite is also known as Alamogordo glass and nuclear glass. This atomic glass display collectible [50117] has an in-color photo of the first atomic bomb test on July 16, 1945 and Oppenheimer quote.

Robert Oppenheimer was the director of the Los Alamos lab and supervised the blast, the first that the world had ever seen.

The special Collector's Edition features Oppenheimer's quote from the Bhagavad Gita. This quote says, “If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am Become Death, the Shatterer of Worlds...”

This one-of-a-kind display contains Trinitite, the byproduct from the blast, and is a nuclear glass produced by the heat and intensity of the explosion. The mushroom cloud formed within seconds of the detonation and penetrated the atmosphere for 50 miles in the first seven minutes. The yield was estimated to be equivalent to 25 kilotons of TNT.

Display size: 8 1/4" L X 6 1/4" W X 3/4" D. Size of circle disk: 1 1/4 inches.

This is guaranteed authentic green black trinitite. Size: 21mm X 15mm X 6mm. The trinitite atomic glass weight is 1.26 grams.

The large plexiglass base and photo cube are not included. XRF included.
