SALUTATION: Greetings fellow Etsyan lab rat! Everything you read about me on the bathroom wall is true...I'm EASY! Don't like the price below?...give me your OBO!

CONTRAPTION: Plutonium-based Trinity nuclear bomb blast glass specimen. AKA Itsa hunk of atomic-age tourist trap crap that I had to roller derby over to, and elbow my way through the groping crowds, to fetch it just for you.

MATTER: man caused glass

WANNA-BE ID-O-METER READING: And you thought you had everything---well you are wrong! Or maybe you need a gift for the person in your life who thinks they have everything. Screw diamonds and gold...nothing says class like a souvenir from the very start of the atomic age. Or it may just be the inspirational "stare it down" plot prop doo-hickey that you leave lying around to cure your writer's block. In any case, I am sure you will find some purpose for it that'll be a head-turning, jaw-dropping, air-gasping tour de force!

--snippet from wiki--

Trinitite, also known as Atomsite or Alamogordo Glass, is the glassy residue left on the desert floor after the plutonium-based Trinity nuclear bomb test on July 16, 1945, (The date of the test is usually considered to be the beginning of the Atomic Age) near Alamogordo, New Mexico. Trinity was the code name of the first detonation of a nuclear device. This test was conducted by the United States Army. The glass is primarily composed of arkosic sand that was melted by the atomic blast. It is usually a light green, although color can vary. It is mildly radioactive, but is safe to handle.

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, samples were gathered and sold to mineral collectors as a novelty. Traces of the material may be found at the Trinity Site today, although most of it was bulldozed and buried by the United States Atomic Energy Commission in 1953. It is now illegal to take the remaining material from the site; however, material that was taken prior to this prohibition is still in the hands of collectors.
