I do see what you mean Christine or do you prefer Lustrousstone which is a very beautiful and apt name in this context
Why our very own English language is made up from Latin/Greek/Anglo Saxon with some other more exotic influence thrown in. I do agree with your approach, but I think the original 1840s Baccarat product name Chrysoprase is at least safe (Glass Museum) and that name was taken from the stone which I feel you broke down most eloquently in a previous post.
Can we both agree that however the minerals name was derived it is green and that the glass is green - that old uranium content.
That brings me to a question I hope you don't mind me asking - 'Uranium Towers' as you mentioned your job, does this relate to a scientific bent or a love of Uranium, fluorescent and Vaseline Glass.
I have to agree on companies taking words and throwing a subtle twist - in â€˜Murano Boardâ€™ we are debating 'Aventurine' products, a word worth breaking down in itself, but for Nason we have the label for a product Avventurina.
