Vaseline glass

Im not typically into antiques, esp not glassware, but vaseline glass really caught my attention. It was produced initially from 1880s -1920s and then again in the 50s. It is usually yellowish to light green and glows under UV (black) light due to the presence of uranium. Some consider only the yellow glass to be vaseline, but i also collect green uranium glass, purely because it glows! slightly because its old, not because its valuable, it isnt very. I just like the way it looks.
