9mm Fiery Cadmium orange red UV reactive transparent bugle beads bugles antique Murano glass vintage Italian blacklight


Shipping to United States: $3.95

10 gram package. Approximately 9 mm each. These lovelies are a stunning red orange color that will add drama to your work. And they have a superpower: under UV light (blacklight) they glow a stunning red orange. And they are gorgeous under regular light, too.

The two commonly used frequencies of black lights are 395nm (most common) and 365nm. While these particular beads are a gorgeous orange under 395nm (picture #4), they're super bright under 365nm (picture #5). Win-win!

Fluorescent uranium glass is also known as Vaseline glass (pale yellowish-green), Custard glass (opaque or semiopaque pale yellow), Jadite glass (opaque or semi-opaque pale green), Depression glass (pale green).

In the early 20th century, these rare beads were painstakingly hand manufactured by master craftsmen in the fabled Societa Veneziana Conterie glass factories of Murano, Italy. The slight irregularities in size and shape are an expected and natural result of the production process, which is a lost art.

Nothing shown in the photos other than the beads is included in your purchase.
