Is Fake Trinitite Being Sold on the Open Market?

Is Fake Trinitite Being Sold on the Open Market?

Sunday, May 9, 2010 9:52 AM


Dear Friends,

While looking at Wikipedia, I looked at the
Wikipedia page about Trinitite at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinitite


This page stated:

" There are many known fakes in circulation among
collectors. [citation needed] These fakes use a variety
of means to achieve the glassy green silica look as
well as mild radioactivity"

Is this statement true? Are people producing fake
trinitite? If so does anyone have any citations to
either a published article or paper that documents
this claim?

The idea that people would go to extent of adding
radioactive material to fake trinitite does not
sound plausiable

Yours,

Paul H
