Trinitite From King Tut's Tomb
"I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." -- Mahabharata/J.Robert Oppenheimer
When asked by an interviewer at Rochester University if the Trinity shot at Alamagordo was the first detonation in history, Oppenheimer replied, "Well, yes, in modern history."
The green scarab in the middle is called Libyan Desert Glass a.k.a. Trinitite.
Trinitite can only be formed by thermonuclear radiation from an atomic bomb.
It has been dated to 26 million years ago.
