Some collectors love glass vases made with trace amounts of Uranium Dioxide. Radioactive, yet nontoxic, the collectable canary glass or uranium glass, became known as Vaseline glass in the early 20th century for its similar color to petroleum jelly. See the glowing, yellow-green coloration of Art Deco vaseline glass objects displayed by members of the international Vaseline Glass Collectors, Inc. during their trip to Toledo for the club’s 20th annual convention.
