A glass button found near ground zero at Hiroshima contains neutron-induced fission tracks because of its uranium content of 0.44 ppm. Exposure of the smaller fragments to neutrons in a reactor gave a calibration for finding the fluence on August 6, 1945, and at the same time it colored the glass a deep blue. See article by R. L. Fleischer et al. on page 719 for more information.
