This listing is for 1 sheet of GREEN Glow in the Dark glass. It is handmade here in the Pacific North West. It is perfect for your unique stained glass projects. It is a bit thicker than a standard sheet of glass. It is closer to 3.5 to 4mm in thickness. (It will vary due to the handmade nature). Each sheet is larger than 6" x 6". During the firing process the edges curl up a bit. Because of this, I cut the sheets larger so that you have a full 6" x 6" to work with! Due to the handmade nature of the glass the thickness ranges from 3.5 to 4mm.

**NEW** I also have 3mm glow glass! Please choose from the drop down which thickness you would like.**

I have a new process that makes the glass easier to cut. The top has texture. (You want to cut on the smoothest side!) However, upon firing, it will gloss right up! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. Also, if you would like it made the "old" way where the sheet is glossy, please feel free to reach out or put your request in the comments.

**The Green will always appear to be the brightest. Next is turquoise then the azure. I have found that the azure charges best with a black light (UV light). **

Please select the colour you would like from the drop down menu. If you need a larger volume (or different size!) than I have listed, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Due to the many variations in monitors and browsers, colors may appear different on different monitors. I can not guarantee that the color you see on your device is the same as in person.

In order for Glow in the Dark items to properly glow, they will need to be charged. Charging is done with a light source. An ultraviolet light will always charge them quickly and to their full brightness. Not all light sources will give you the same length of glow or brightness.

I recommend a UV light (blacklight) or the sun.

Glow in the dark glass has phosphorescence... meaning it contains a special substance called phosphor. Phospors give off visible light after being energized. (This means that they have to soak up light for a while before they will glow!) I use strontium aluminate which is a new phosphate that allows a "super" glow! It stores about 10 times more light than zinc sulfate (Another type of phosphor used to create glow in the dark items). As a result... the glow lasts longer!

Why the green glow?

The human eye is particularly sensitive to green light... so green appears brightest to us. Green phosphor also absorbs a wide range of wavelengths of light to produce a glow. Other colors require specific wavelengths of light to work. Green is easy to charge, long lasting and bright!
