#01. There is about 2-3 grams in a bottle. I hand pick the pieces as to get as many different colors and contrasts, you won't actually receive this bottle. This comes with a signed and numbered Gamma-ray spectra. There is a guy in N.C selling trinitite on line claimig it is straight from this collection, simply not true, these are signed and numbered. This bottle has approximately three grams of trinitite and some white sand from White Sands Missile Range. This trinitite is straight from the well known Wallace T Smith Collection here in New Mexico. He collected this while working in radio at Sandia Labs during the time of the Atom Bomb Test in 1945. I worked for his wife at thier cattle ranch in Corrales, N.M. and when she passed the family gifted me the majority of the trinitite. The story of this collection and how I received it is in the 2018 William Kolb book " Trinitite the Atomic Age Mineral. Feel free to ask questions and thanks for looking.
