Default How to tell the difference without heat between Effetre Clear & Effetre Crystal Clear

Hi folks I was given a lot of what I thought was all Crystal Clear glass and was unpacking & loading into my dishwasher when I came across 3 rods labelled Clear and 3 rods labelled Crystal Clear 🤦🏼♀️it then dawned on me that this was a mixed batch !
Please can anyone tell me is there a way of telling without heat which is which - so far the only difference Iíve noticed is some have a slight blue hue at the ends and some have a slight yellow hue - but which is which ??

On those labels is there a number? Last three digits? 006 or 004?

The only way to tell IMO is to melt them......and that is subjective. Clean them really well and have a green scrubby by your torch. The 004 regular clear may need some touchups...but you can use either as long as the clarity is there. It's fine.
