Is it written down anywhere, Frank - or was that just his personal interpretation because some did get overstruck, or did he have "insider knowledge"?
Haveing seen and held and examined Christine's goblets, where the brown is absent, they look completely right. Brown just doesn't go
with the other colours.
(mind you, I don't think "brown" goes with anything
I don't know of any "Alexandrite" made by other makers - unless it's neodynium. I thought this tri/quaternary colour heat struck thing was purely "Webb's Alexandrite", "Alexandrite" being the name they specifically gave to this range.
Kind of like the names given to colours by wfs, so you know where you are with "wfs kingfisher", but it would be wrong to describe all turquoises, particularly those from other makers, as "kingfisher".
I'm still not sure if we are yet sure whether the brown is supposed to be there or not.
I speculated not, because it does absolutely nothing to improve it.
This is the big thread where the other discussion got going. It was a bit OT to the OP's post.
How do I tell M to stop looking for it?http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,56652.0.html
