The color of this trinitite is green. It is nuclear glass produced by the first nuclear atomic bomb at the Trinity test site. Trinitite is also known as Alamogordo glass and Atomsite. This Collector's Edition contains an in-color photo of the first nuclear bomb on July 16, 1945. Robert Oppenheimer was the director of the Los Alamos lab and supervised the blast, the first that the world had ever seen. This nuclear glass is guaranteed authentic and legally collected in 1948.

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 of 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.
