American Glass Research has published a book entitled Color Atlas of Stones in Glass.
The book provides a comprehensive description of 39 stones, accompanied by more than 300 original colour photographs, images and spectra.
Detailed identification tips, compositions, causes and sources are given for each stone, as well as its physical and crystalline characteristics.
The atlas is intended to facilitate identification of the most common glass stones across the four major glass industries: container, tableware, flat glass and fiberglass.
This volume focuses on practical assistance with the identification of stones through colour photographs.
This publication is expected to be a valuable guide for furnace operators, quality control engineers, filling line incoming inspectors and personnel responsible for the day to day monitoring of glass quality.
The Color Atlas of Stones in Glass is available through Amazon or directly from AGR via the website: www.americanglassresearch.com or by calling +1-724-482-2163.
