Great article! Thanks, Frank. I'm going to see if I can get any of the cited references from the library. Although the results seem fairly straightforward, it's tough to take them and directly apply them to the colors we see in fluorescent glass, and hope to single out the molecules involved. For instance, most ABP glass glows light lime green, I assume due to the presence of lead and manganese. I've found that a lot of Bohemian glass glows yellowish to a dirty orange; I wonder whether soda has something to do with it. Who knows what impurities might be involved, and how much interaction there is among molecules that influence the fluorescent colors we see?
Adam, after reading more of your posts, I figured it must be the case that you worked for those companies, but by that time couldn't modify my post, sorry. What a wealth of experience and information you must posess!
Re skeleton molds: I'm going to repost my question in a new thread; this isn't really the most appropriate place.
