Phosphorescent material


Hello, i'd like to buy a nice jewlery for my girlfriend (link above), but i think these glassware could be even better with a luminescent material.

I have ZnO in stock and i know it is compatible with high temperature and fluorescent UV (254 365 nm) but i'm looking for a material also phosphorescent in darkness after visible light exposition (like many shirt décoration)

I often meet this team in festivals and know they would craft a custum item.

She will positively RADIATE charm... And a few alpha particles?

Hey, I have a girlfriend and she actually enjoys watching me do chemistry! And likewise, I enjoy showing her cool stuff, especially messing with her brain like when things rapidly change colours or when solutions suddenly get cloudy. Even watching viscimation from mixing alcohols and water, or dissolving salts, seems to fascinate her quite a bit.




In chemistry, sometimes the solution is the problem.

Where can I find a girlfriend like that?

thank you but these minerals contains tritium (T2O ?) , i think that using them for glassblowing will cause their evaporation isnt it ?

I found a shop (ambientglowtechnology) selling luminescent minerals, i'm asking for some information to them... wait and see.

It’s tritium gas, the H2 analogue as opposed to water. You can always put these in pendants and other enclosable jewellery pieces. Maybe if you can find a glass blower skilled enough, they may be able to bend and encapsulate it into some sort of glass ring? Metal would be easier for someone to work with, Google ‘tritium jewellery’ for more ideas.

You really don't want to alter those Tritium vials. They are very thin glass, will crack and leak easily, not so much radiological hazzard as they would just lose the tiny bit of Tritium and QUIT WORKING. Happens occasionally to the self luminescent gun sights when clumsy people install them poorly.

Yes, enclosing the vials in a pendant is what you could do. Don't try to add them to a glass melt.

Paint the jewellery with ZnS, then when you expose her to high X-ray radiation levels, it'll glow.

Actually, tritium decays kicking out a super-weenie beta. I'd recommend Strontium aluminate-rare earth phosphors, maybe something like this:

Perhaps you could follow NurdRage's marathon synthesis video, and make yourself some luminol.
