 :) Neodynium, I suspect.
To me, it looks more Czech than Murano - the style is much more modernist than traditional. :)

 :) Neodynium is dichroic. It shows different colours in different wavelengths of light.
A rosy pink/lilac in daylight, a pale grey-blue in incandescent light.
I can see two of the shades it offers, the paler lilac of the casing and the rosy pink around the internal base where the light is on thicker glass and coming at an angle to it.  8)
