Tritium Core Pendant

For some reason this reminds me of the old visible petrol pump.  This was meant to be housed under a glass dome but the design ended up being too tall for it to fit.  So here it is as a pendant.  You can see I’ve included a tiny “gauge” including a tiny watch hand.  I recently started using hand UV glue which I’ve used to seal the dial.  The core is green Tritium with a fine wire spring sealed inside a second glass vial.  Tritium glows continuously for 10 to 12 years.  Unlike conventional glow in the dark, it doesn’t require “charging” from another light source.  The core sits on a heavy solid brass bead.  It’s on a brass faceted cut chain that is 22 ½ inches long with a lobster claw clasp.  The pendant is 1 ½ inches high and ½ an inch wide.

“The ever-present light blends with and vivifies all things. Nothing is absolutely fixed. The bright gleam which lights the sight, or the diaphanous shadow which veils it, are only seen in passing. In the actual moment during which we see, composed as it is of fluctuating gleams and reflections, palpitates with movement, light, and life.”
      ―   Stéphane Mallarmé  

Observations from several telescopes combine to reveal flaring, active regions of the sun in this image. High-energy X-rays from NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) appear in blue; low-energy X-rays from Japan’s Hinode spacecraft shine in green; and extreme ultraviolet light from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) glows yellow and red.
