Greg Merkels presentation on Carders blue glass got me thinking about a Symposium a long time ago. Dick Bright brought a piece of blue jade to the ID clinic. It was neither light nor dark. It was an unusual teal-like shade of blue. The piece was passed around and deemed it was Steuben, but we were not sure of the color. I believe Dick found this piece on the west coast and said he was told it was California Blue, at least thats what I remember! Many years have gone by and we found a piece in that shade of blue. Now Greg has cleared up the mystery. It is Solid Blue Jade. Maybe others have some blue glass pieces they would like to share!
