Default Tritium vial in the dark !!

I bought the glowing vial a few days ago. I never own tritium which is a radioactive gas with a half-life of 12 years. Meaning after this period this gas is reduced at the half. The brightness will also be reduced in time but the process is slow, very slow.
I took few pictures with my 7D camera. Here are the results :



The vial is quite small. Almost the same diameter as a 5.6mm diode.


The closing end. The gas is secured with glass stop.


Under normal light.


Completely dark.


With a 405nm laser shining on the ceiling. Nice color effects.


Next to my Eghemus host.




Picture taken in pitch dark. The radio-active vial of Homer Simpson.
ISO: 1600, Shutter speed: 30 sec, Aperture: 5,6

Thanks all !!

I need something to protect the vial. Maybe a sandglass holder ? Could be another DIY project

Sweet! That's a good price too. I'm getting a custom flashlight host made over a CPF with some trit slots in it. I think they are 1.5mm x 5mm. A member there sells them for $7 each if I remember right.
