Iridescent Ammonite
Iridescent Ammonite with Rare Blue Coloration
75 - 70 million years old (Late Cretaceous). The spectacular colors of this ammonite exceed expectations, even for ammonites from the distinguished Bear Paw Formation. Rarely are blue-indigo and violet seen in these specimens, yet, in this example, turquoise is also present. Brilliant greens, some red-orange and yellow-gold accompany the rare blue palette in a breathtaking profusion of shimmering color. Coveted by collectors the world over, the finest ammonites from the Bear Paw Formation display remarkably brilliant colors not seen in ammonites from other localities. Their stunning palette results from light interference by the shell layers.

Manhattan Project Glass, Hanford Location
This glass was used at the Hanford Washington Manhattan Project location. One of the biggest and most undercover operations the United States Military has ever done. There were three main facilities around the nation that took part in the making of the first atomic bomb. At Hanford they created the first plutonium ever, that went into the Trinity bomb in New Mexico, the first man-made nuclear blast, and the plutonium for the Fat Man Bomb dropped on Nagasaki, Japan.
