Max, try and see if you can get hold of the UV epoxy inks that are being developed for glass printing. They bond chemically to the glass with UV instead of heat. It would allow permanent designs on any size of glass sheet.

Just an aside as I wanted a spot to add this info, for those who still think it is particles of metal, from Hodkin & Cousen, 1925 p122:

"Certain types of glass, not too acid... may become supersaturated with colouring oxides... cooling under suitable conditions cause the excess to crystallise out and gives aventurine glasses."
