    Yes its around to buy, just beware, that the samples you may get may be faked. It goes for around 45 dollars{US} for a tiny sample. Just make sure the person your buying it from has a good reputation.

    I had to look up what trinitite was. In case anyone else doesn't know:
    http://geology.about.com/library/bl/images/bltrinitite.htm

    It sounds like it's safe to own, but other than the source, it's just glass.
