Watch me make uranium glass:

Main channel:

I made this uranium glass myself and it actually contains uranium. What's cool about it is that it fluoresces under a black light, and it lets off a really nice green color. Because it contains uranium, it's radioactive, and this can be detected using a Geiger counter.
