Vetro 970 - Streaky Sapphire

Another odd lot - and this one is truly hard to photograph accurately.

The rods themselves have an odd feel - they are frosted and have a light matte texture - and appear to be a deep aqua. But when worked and annealed - they come up a beautiful sparkling deep sapphire colour - with tiny wisps deep in the glass. This is really a stunning shade of blue - the pictures do not begin to do it justice.

Over all, I would say, you do not want any of this glass - this is truly horrible glass and a nasty colour (besides, who needs blue glass anyway). If you have already been unfortunate enough to buy this glass, I suggest that you box it up and ship it to me, and I will put it out of your misery for you. ;-)
