For the Executive or Serious Rock Collector
Trinitite is fused radioactive sand from directly beneath the world's first atomic bomb detonation
in 1945. The above-ground blast created a crater that was lined with greenish trinitite - normal
sand fused by the unimaginible heat of the fireball. Once very radioactive, the site itself, and the
trinitite found in museums around the world, retain today a negligible amount of radioactivity.
The site has been stripped of all the glassy trinitite in the years since 1945, and this sample
is from a supply collected by a research scientist years after the event occurred.
