What makes AGT Glow Stones Different than other glow stones on the market?
It’s true, not all glow stones are the same… even if they are all called glow stones, glow rocks of glow pebbles. Some glow stones are made out of cheap, plastic molds like 99.9% of the glow in the dark pebbles found on the internet ranging in price from $6/lb to $30/lb.. These glow pebbles are virtually identical in glow performance – glowing for approximately 30-60 minutes and then dying. The only real difference between the $6 and the $30 glow pebble is the marketing. Glow pebbles are a good option for use in planters and glow toys for kids but not for commercial applications where glow performance is important.Read More

The next step is to order a sample from the top online glow stone players and compare their glow performances. Once you decide on a professional-grade glow stone supplier, you need to make a decision on which concrete contractor you feel most comfortable using.

The use of high performance glow stones in concrete and asphalt surfaces is becoming increasingly popular. Unlike the glowing pebbles and plastic glowing stars typically associated with arts and crafts applications, professional-grade glow stones will glow for over 10 hours after just 10 minutes of exposure to daylight. Ambient Glow Technology manufactures the highest grade of photoluminescent glow stones and glow sand in the world.
The biggest issue over the years regarding glow rocks and glow sand has been glow performance. How long do glow stones actually glow for. There are many online companies that state that their glow pebbles or glow stones glow for over 10 hours and in reality they don’t. Before spending a bunch of money on glow stones, We recommend you buy a sample of each and see how the glow intensity and duration compares with your own eyes. The truth is in the glow!
