Genuine Trinitite specimens, atomite, or atom bomb glass. This exotic material is the result of the historic Trinity Test of the world's first atomic bomb. Trinitite is a glassy material that was created during the explosion as the desert sands fused into a radioactive glass. Similar by-products of nuclear reactions were created at Bikini Atoll, by the Soviets during various nuclear tests, and during events like Chernobyl, Three-Mile Island, and the recent Fukushima nuclear power plant meltdown. See each individual item description for more details. You will also see other non-trinitite specimens offered here that are related to nuclear history, the Cold War, or radioactive minerals.
