I’ve got a list of these I’m trying to get up on the site. I just feel like I’ve got a lot to adjust and change to, especially in coming to grips with my anxiety diagnosis. I’m going to get them up, I promise.
These are jadeite spice jars. Salt, pepper, and a blank one I think used to say paprika. It used to be the third condiment on the dinner table. Jadeite had its heyday back in the forties and fifties. Martha Stewart tried to make her own line of jadeite popular, but it just wasn’t the same. Not the same process, not the same color, not the same at all. So, the old-school jadeite has become pretty popular.
Compared to this:
I especially like these because these are the uranium kind of jadeite. They glow under an ultraviolet light. Not all jadeite glows, but this stuff is the real deal in my book.
Okay, it’s a little hard to tell in the picture, but it’s glowing green, compared with this jadeite, which is from the fifties, that doesn’t have the uranium in it.
That purple glow is what it does to everything else, not like uranium glass, where it’s reacting with the radiation produced by the depleted uranium in the glass.
