The glass is probably neodynium.
Neodynium glass changes colour under florescent (inc. "low energy") lightbulbs. In daylight and under tungsten / halogen bulbs it's that purple / violet colour.

Thanks, Robbo.

I thought it probably was neodymium.  I've read about it, but never seen any meself.  I was hoping that someone who knows would confirm it.    :lol:

Now to find out where it came from...

Hi Chris,
Sorry I can't help you with the mark - I'm sure someone will be along to help soon.
I just bought a neodynium carafe set and have had lots of fun with the lighting in my flat  :lol:
Best wishes,
robbo
