AMBER
Medium transparent honey yellow-amber color. May be slightly lighter or darker at times.


BURMESE This pastel yellow color is an mainly an opaque yellow but can be heat treated to turn pink in the hottest areas. Because of its opaque qualities, it is not recommended that large amounts of this color be used in chandeliers.

COBALT Deep transparent ultramarine blue made with cobalt oxide.

COPPER Transparent brown ranging from rosy-pinkish brown to orange-brown to tarnished copper brown.

GREEN Emerald, a medium transparent green made with iron oxide that can vary from slightly yellow-green to slightly blue-green.

LAVENDER Light transparent lavender made with neodymium oxide. This color is a divalent color, it will look like light cobalt under most fluorescent lighting but will look lavender in daylight, tungsten and halogen lighting.

LIGHT BLUE Aquamarine, light transparent blue-green made with copper oxide.

LIGHT COBALT Sapphire, light transparent blue made with cobalt.

MINT This light pastel green color will vary from opaque to nearly transparent. It is a color that changes the longer it is in the furnace. The first day or two of working the color will be opaque. On about the third day it will be or start to get transparent. By the fourth day it may be completely transparent. Large pieces are usually made while this color is opaque. By the time the glass is getting transparent, smaller pieces (spikes and minis) will be the only production. Because of its opaque qualities, it is not recommended that large amounts of this color be used in chandeliers.

NEAR CLEAR Nearly transparent clear with slight traces of green or aquamarine. Color will show more in thick portions of glass.

OPAL Another striking color, transparent clear that will strike to opaque white. White will be on larger pieces only, curlies, large melons, medium melons (not minis). Spikes will be mostly clear and may have a white tip. Color is time consuming to make because of the range of heat needed to get it to "strike". Used only sparingly, if used in larger quantities a surcharge will be added.

RED Deep transparent ruby red. A striking color, meaning the glass must receive reheating to develop its color. May be yellow in upper parts of curlies or melons that receive less heat. A piece made from the same batch of glass that isn't reheated may be yellow, or dark amber. Can be very dark at times, especially in thick areas of glass. Thin areas of red can sometimes look orange or red-orange but there is no control possible to only acheive the orange color.

ROSE Light transparent pink. Exhibits some divalent characteristics of the lavender color but not as noticable a change in color from different light sources.

SMOKE Deep transparent coffee brown made with nickel oxide.

TURQUOISE Deep transparent blue-green made with copper oxide.

VASELINE A transparent yellow-green, can be more yellow or yellow-green. This color will be a bright green under a black light. It can also be heat treated to strike opalescent (usually on curlies only).

VIOLET Light transparent violet only slightly more blue than the lavender color above.
