Glowing piece of pottery

by Kim Murphy
(Lake Villa, IL )

I found a small piece of pottery on a Lake Michigan beach. The glaze looks pale yellow or slightly pink (crackled from age) but glows pale yellow-green with a lavender edge under a black light. The picture doesn't show it well. What might it be?

There is information on uranium glass on this site, so search in the search box above. Uranium glass was mostly used in Vaseline jars in the USA but also in many other items.
