Ordinary glass is green with envy.
Glass is pretty clear, right? Take a look at a sheet of
"clear" glass from the edge - it will be a pretty deep
shade of green. While normal glass is fine for the great majority
of applications, there are times when having better clarity and
color accuracy is important, and that's where Starphire glass
comes in. Its special low-iron low-lead formula makes for
very clear glass, with only a slight bluish tint.
