Each piece is individually priced and the weight is also listed next to each sample. This glassy residue was what was left on the desert floor after the 1945 Trinity site test of the Atom bomb. A rare man made mineral. This is from the Wallace T. Smith collection collected in the late 1940's, He worked at Sandia labs in Radio. Feel free to ask any questions or for more pictures. These pictures are all of the same samples but different angles and lighting to help one get a clearer image of what they in fact look like. Get a piece of History while you can. Please see the auction listings as well. Thanks for looking. I do not show all of the Gamma-ray spectrum as there was an attempted online theft of it.
