Pink, green, black and even red are only a few colors that you will see on glassware. There are so many that it will make your head spin! Here are some of the colors that you may have not heard of:
Jadeite—this is a type of glass for the table made of Jade-green opaque milk glass. Jadeite was popular in the United States in the mid-20th century and has a blue variety that’s called “Azur-ite”.
MONAX—this is a translucent white glass that has a faint blue hue when held up to the light. This unique colored glass is sometimes mistaken as milk glass (which is whiter in color).
Ruby Flashed glass—this is created by coating a clear glass with one or more thin layers of colored glass (this is also known as flashed glass). The colored glass can be either partly or completely etched away by using items like acid or sandblasting. This results in spots where the colored glass has been removed.
This is a ridiculously small portion of all the colors that you will run across. What have you seen?
