Methinks purple slag not malachite - which is green in essence.

Yes, you are right in essence, however, the correct name for the marbled glass as made by those Northern boys is apparently malachite - regardless of colour!

Slag is a misnomer...

In that case i flatly refuse to go along with what must be an even bigger misnomer than vayzeleen.
