These Antique Bottles GLOW Under a UV Light! WHY?!

***Important video correction: I have been made aware it is actually Manganese in the glass which causes the bottles to glow under UV, not Uranium. My apologies!*** There's a bunch of history in this video! We go on a creek walk to look for antique bottles and relics from the late 1800's - early 1900's, and explore the remains of a historic bath house that was built along a river. They believe the sulfur spring water to have all sorts of healing and anti-aging properties. There were apparently four hotels here! At the end of the video I show you what these antique bottles with Manganese do when exposed to a UV light. Manganese was used as a discoloring agent for the glass, and is reactive to UV! Thanks for watching the video. I hope that y'all enjoy!
