TYPE 1
Exactly as described on the previous page, with the surface of each specimen exhibiting the  light olive green, glass-like fused top surface, without large gas pockets or irregularities. Pricing is determined by the specimen size on the smaller examples.  Because of the fragile nature of the glass-like Trinitite, larger specimens are difficult to obtain. The larger specimens are priced by the gram @ +/- $6.00 / gram.
