Vaseline (or uranium) glass glows green under ultraviolet light because of the uranium oxide which added to the glass in its molten state. In natural or indoor light, Vaseline glass is transparent or translucent with a yellow or yellow-green tinge. Not to be confused with Custard glass or Burmese glass, which also glow under ultraviolet light but are opaque.
