“This is a unique form of art glass stone developed in the early 20th century. During the production process certain metals are added to the molten glass; they produce a base color in various shades of red, orange, and rose with streaks and patches of blues and purples suspended within. The intensity of these ‘breaths’ of contrasting colors changes with the angle of the light, similar to the color play response of precious opal.”
