What is Fenton uranium glass? Otherwise known as Vaseline glass , is a term for the transparent yellow to yellow-green glass that owes its color to its uranium content. This type of glass is most noticeable under ultraviolet light, where it glows bright green. The yellowish color of custard glass is created by uranium oxide in the formula. This ingredient makes custard fluoresce under long wave black light.
However, this is not a reliable test of age. Although uranium was banned for use during and after WW II, it has been in widespread use since the 1960s. The item "Vintage Fenton'uranium''vaseline' Custard Satin electric Hurricane Table Lamp" is in sale since Sunday, July 18, 2021.
