Green (reactive) Jewelry Cask, French? Bohemian?
« on: March 02, 2013, 05:35:22 PM »
I had never bought one of these before because they are usually pricy (at least in the U.S.) but this one was a fraction of where they usually priced. Fairly certain its Opaline, but is it French or Bohemian? Thanks, Ken

Thanks Ivo...I had to look up chrysoprase, never heard of it before now. Yes it does react strongly under blacklight so it had Uranium of some sort in the batch.

So it possibly is Baccarat, second half 19th ct.
