Unique Project - Lumination for Antique Glass

Inverted UV LED "Candle" for uranium glass candle holder

I saw this candlestick holder in the window of a charity shop and I kind of suspected it might be uranium glass, which I have a large collection of. Of course, I did the weird creepy stalky thing of going out at night when the shop was shut and shining a UV LED light into the window and, sure enough, the glass glowed green.

So I had this idea of an inverted, clear "candle" with a UV LED pointing down. This kind of fell apart soon after I took the picture... it was just held together with hot glue gun glue which didn't really seem to stick to the acetate/melinex very well. But it seems to work as a concept anyway.
