What were your feelings or impressions when taking this photo?

I found what I thought was Vaseline glass and held it up to a black light and it wasn't.

Curious, I went through my entire collection and a hidden gem awaited me! 

This piece has small amounts of uranium, which make it glow. 

The piece is an odd greenish/yellow color.  Be on the lookout for these pieces and invest in a black light! 

What kind of camera and/or lens did you use?
