Description

Glow-in-the-dark blue along the bottom and a miniature corked bottle with green sand inside IT. This resin pyramid is a sure conversation-starter! This is one-of-a-kind. It was cool and fun to make, but because of the time involved, I don't know if I'll ever make any more (there are six in the series so far).

Size is 3.5 inch x 3.5 inch x 2.5 inch.

I used over two ounces of glow-in-the-dark sand to make this. It also takes a considerable amount of time to wait for each pour to set before continuing to the next. (A total of three pours for this one.)

It seems like everyone who sees this says, "Wow! That's cool!" (or equivalent). :) It's better with a blue base and green inside seems to be the consensus, too.

If this one seems expensive, look for the small one. The effect is almost identical, but the cost is less. (Even they take just as long to make!)

This can be used as a desk accessory, placed on your nightstand or dresser, in your box of magical items, or used in many other ways.

This glows all night with a full charge. Actually, the tech specs say the green can glow upward of 24 hours but I'm thrilled with overnight I get after charging with a really bright flashlight in just a few seconds! :) A full charge is 1 hour in direct sunlight. However, my experience shows much less is very acceptable. You can also charge with a black light.

It does not require maintenance. I welcome questions about the piece or how I made it. Even if you do not intend to buy it and you intend to make some of your own, I am fine with that.

The sand comes from Glow, Inc. and is their Green V10 and the Ultra Blue (the only two colors of sand they make), and the green is the longest glowing substance known to man! It glows *25 times* brighter and longer than anything else! They have perfected a process whereby they start with normal white sand and then they chemically bond the glowing ingredients to it. The result is sand that glows!

How did I make them? This is an exercise in logic! :-) But if it's not immediately clear to you how I did it (as it was to me), you can learn how from my (sparse) blog, here: http://theglowinthedarkman.com/ A post from 2017.12.30 explains everything. (As of this writing, it's still the top post on my website.)

When you look at all the angles of this, it truly is an experience in STEM. It seems as though light *can enter* but *can never leave* because you can see into it, but you can't see through the other side because the plane of the pyramid acts as a mirror. Fun stuff!

Absolutely beautiful! It’s obvious Leland cares deeply about his craft. I even slipped in a special request for a green instead of a blue glowing mushroom to which he very kindly obliged. The Glow-In-The-Dark Man was so quick on email response and just as quick to make the product and put in the mail. I am truly impressed with every aspect of this purchase. Thank you so much!

very bright glow, got a deal on a slightly screwed up one with a few little extras thrown in, very nice seller, worked out well for both of us since I like the more natural look of the "damaged" one anyway!
thank you Leland : )
