* I wrote this Guide in 2006 to tell you about Collecting Brilliant Glowing Persimmon Orange Manganese Glass which changes colors under a Blacklight *
Similar to Vaseline (Uranium laden) Glass - which glows shades of green in a black light - Manganese laden glass glows orange (various orange hues) in a black light.

Here is Fascinating Information about Manganese Laden Glass:

 The first known glass with orange glowing properties was Ancient Egyptian glass, particularly purple glass, which was found to contain manganese. Manganese causes it to glow vibrant orange and / or peach and / or tangerine under a blacklight.  This glowing component - Manganese - has been added to glass objects for many centuries - to achieve particular coloration in natural light, not necessarily to make it fluoresce.  Many amazing manganese laden items were created in various countries over the years.  Manganese glass, like Vaseline glass, is highly sought after, collected widely and becomes more scarce and valuable with time.  Today, serious collectors have large glass cases, in their homes, with blacklights to show off their incredible collections.  The amazing luminescent qualities of this type of glass are quite exciting and vivid.
