First Atomic bomb test - "Trinitite" fragments (x2). TWO pieces of original Trinitite from the world's first Atomic bomb test are included in framed presentation (17"x13") along with photo of the blast. Providence: On July 16, 1945 the first Atomic bomb was detonated at the Trinity test site in the New Mexico desert. The blast generated a temperature of 10 million degrees Fahrenheit and the intense heat melted the desert sand into a light green glass-like substance which is now known as Trinitite. While it is no longer legal to acquire from the original site, small amounts collected prior to the restriction are legal to own. Dramatic artifacts from the beginning of the Atomic age.
Estimated Value $750 - 1,000.

Realized $2,520
