Hello everybody,

I was hoping if anybody could tell me something about this type of glass, that I know of but am unfamiliar with.

I did not know VSL did neodymium glass, just for fun I tried under uv light to see what happens and the thing lits up but all violet. This vase dates from the period 1951-1958 and it shows blue on the image, but as I'm standing next to it, the colour is fluorescent pink. On the image in the dark, you can see some pink on the left, while actually the whole vase has this colour but for some reason does not come through on the photo. Is it normal for this type of glass to react like that under uv light?

Nice one. Neodymium glass should look different colours in fluorescent and incandescent light. I don't know what that UV effect is but lead crystal often looks bluish under UV

Thanks for that Christine, I did not know.


Next to a lamp it gets an aqua marine like colour. Again, doesn't  show well but the colour is throughout the piece.
