The Atomic Hen

According to Dangerous Laboratories(1), some antique glassware and ceramics are radioactive, due to the use of uranium as a coloring agent. The glass hen (pictured) is made of 'uranium glass' and fluoresces when exposed to a blacklight. The site cautions that while radioactive glassware and ceramics are safe to collect, they should never be used to eat or drink from. Listen to a WAV file(2) of a Geiger counter as it detects radiation from a Fiestaware pitcher.
