Authentic Rare Red Trinitite for Sale

Authentic Rare Red Trinitite For Sale
Authentic Rare Red Trinitite for Sale A number of different types of Trinitite have been identified. Green is the most common form. Black and red contains iron from the tower structure. Red contains copper from the 'gadget' itself or from the communications cables that led away from the site. Trinitite could have iron mixed in it because the tower that held the bomb was made of steel. (Steel is an alloy consisting mostly of iron). Also "Jumbo" - the steel canister that contained the "device" was held from a detonating tower. The detonation was initially planned for 4:00 am but was postponed because of rain and lightning from early that morning. It was feared that the danger from radiation and fallout would be greatly increased by rain, and lightning had the scientists concerned about accidental detonation. Trinity was the first test of an atomic weapon. It was conducted by the United States on July 16, 1945. The official environment in which the trinitite was created consisted of sand, copper, iron/ steel and whatever indigenous minerals that were in the ground at the time of the atomic test. Both black and red specimens are extremely rare. Rounded pearls are also found which come from melted silica that returned to solid form before hitting the ground.

About Our Trinitite: Trinitite has been created during Nuclear test blasts and has been found at some of these test blasts sites throughout the world. Itís a result of the intense heat then melting of the sand and its associated components into green, red and black colored glass. Named for the Trinity Bomb testing in New Mexico on July 16, 1945, samples of Trinitite are rare. It was made illegal to remove from the site in 1952. The Trinitite we have for sale was collected in 1948.
