Moretti Glass question

Does "Italian, Moretti, Transparent Uranium Yellow" glass glow when
placed under a blacklight (i.e. 'Vaseline' glass)?
I won a small set of beads awhile ago and the seller stated that
they weremade from "Czech Uranium glass" that she found at the B&B
show and the auction pic showed both the daylight color and then the
glowing blacklight color.
I would love to get more of these beads and tonight I found another
seller that has a set of beads made from the Moretti Uranium Yellow
that look exactly like the set I won. Unfortunately, the seller
doesn't know if they glow under a blacklight. Do any of you
lampworkers in here know? TIA! :)

I have some, and no, it doesn't glow. You can buy glass that does - they sell it on Justbeads. I am not sure of the seller, but I am pretty sure it's still there.

:) I don't want to just buy the glass, I want to buy the glass already made into *beads*. heh... I'll check out Justbeads! I've been meaning to check there for Dichroic bead sets anyway. Thanks again!

LOL! I had to move my glow in the dark duckies because they freaked me so much when I'd turn out the light...
On the other hand, I love the glow in the dark lampwork ghost earrings that I made last Halloween!

ANSWER - NO it's a lie -- it is not truly Uranium Yellow ... I know because I tested mine and was disappointed to find it was not.
You can get Uranium /Vaseline czech beads though.... Cheryl of DRAGON BEADS Flameworked beads and glass

Here's the link to the won auction so you can see the color of the glass. It's a beautiful clear pale yellow in hand. I guess I'll hafta write her and ask her to make more, eh?! :)

- those are CZECH- the ITALIAN Moretti does not glow. Spruce Pine glass also makes furnace glass (90 COE) that is UV - comes in blue, yellow-green, orange, pink and violet. Stuff is killer cool in black light... LOL Cheryl of DRAGON BEADS Flameworked beads and glass

I know - it's SO cool to flash the blacklight on beads. My auction win came with this little, tiny blacklight keychain. So I took the light and then went thru ALL OF MY BEADS, especially the vintage ones, to see if they'd glow or not. heh... now I've a massive mess of my beads and a small packet of everything from crystals to satin beads that glow fluorescent green in the dark. At least twice a day, I'll play with them all. :D

Yah... I've been buying new and vintage beads that are 'Vaseline' blacklight beads in order to stretch those 6 beads I won into more than one or two pieces of jewelry.
Cheryl, do you have any of the Spruce Pine glass that you mentioned before, that comes in all those colors (blue, yellow-green, orange, pink and violet>?? If you do and you feel like getting a a special order from me, e-me!! (I won't feel bad if you're too busy or don't take special orders)
