I do not understand the comment. Bold letters are used only to add the information about what is not clearly seen in the picture. I do apologize if the rules of the forum are not to use bold letters, being interpreted as shouting.

No, you're fine with bold, shouting is ALL CAPS lettering. :thup:

Thanks for the smiles, Anne! What a coincidence – I used the term Anna Gruen for `` Uranium or Vaseline`` glass: Joseph Riedel added uranium salts to glass and achieved two wonderful colors he named after his wife Anna (Anna Gruen and Anna Gelb – green and yellow). He must have loved his wife Anna! The glass glows in ``black light`` (UV). We even used Geiger counter, but there was no radiation emitted from Bohemian ``art nouveau`` and `` Vaseline glass`` made in UK and USA at the turn of the century (19th -20th). Still, it contains very low percentage of uranium salts, in contrast with Biedermeier beakers with about 10 % of uranium salts ! Those mines in Czechoslovakia are closed now because the Russians exhausted uranium ore. People have seen mutated insects of unusual size and shapes living there. For that reason I never carry my Biedermeier beakers in pockets or let alone sleep with them in spite of their beautiful name.
