Default What color is this?

My new favorite walk-in glass shop has a box of shorts to dig through and they sell it at 10 cents an oz. This is a piece I picked up there...



Is it rubino? It looked like a pale lavender blue until I pulled a stringer and the end struck purpley-pink.

Thanks!

You are right, it is Rubino.

It's the same exact thing as my Bullseye too.
It's not Rubino IMHO....

Do they sell Czech glass? It also looks like Czech tourmaline pink.

Whatever it is, I don't think it's rubino.

The box of shorts is all 104 COE, so that rules out Bullseye, right? It's a particularly fat rod...maybe 10mm.

Thanks for the feedback!

Few more pics in different light...
Direct sun,






I didn't see any Czech glass for sale there, but I suppose someone could have brought some in and used it at the torch space and left their shorts behind.

That sounds a little awkward, doesn't it.....

If it's a fat rod, it can be Czech.
I used to have it but I recently sold that last rod. And it was fairly thick as you describe. Any how, this is a nice color.

I have some that's lavender-blue and it was called rubino (104), looks just like it so there's more confusion
It pretty much looks like a color shift, oh can't think of the name..anyways lol

I have some Rubino that looks just like that; some fat rods, some skinny. It's old, and the color is FANTASTIC. I love it!

I thought it was such a splendid color, so wanted to know what it was so I could buy more someday. I will enjoy the few bits I have of it and hope there is more in the box when I return! I did have a few pale lavender blue pieces that look the same but didn't strike at all when I tested them last night...so I guess they are ordinary lavender blue.

It's fun trying out different shorts, but the only drawback is not knowing the color if you want more! But at 10 cents an ounce...it's a fun adventure for a newbie like me, on a budget.

Thanks for all the input!

Rubino comes in every shade from completely clear to ruby red.

What Elizabeth said. I have a wide variety of rubino batches and they range from clear to deep burgundy pink. I even have one batch that looks exactly like 068 and had to strike the ends to make sure I didn't mix them up.

@Kalera: wow... what a collection

but... none of these has that blue/lavender color in the rod, so I second that it's Ornela Rubinit aka Czech tourmaline pink

Some of them do, it's just not readily evident because I shot the pic on a gray backdrop.

It's not that I think it's for sure not Ornela, so much as it seems much likelier to be Rubino if the shop doesn't sell Ornela.

I used to use the Tourmaline Pink quite a lot, and it's a lovely color. Just in terms of Occam's Razor, though, it seems far more likely that the mystery glass is a Rubino cone end.

one thing that just came in my mind... as far as I remember the rubinit/tourmaline does NOT go golden metallic if it's reduced like the rubino does. So you can test with your shorty

Crappy cell phone pic outdoors on white paper:



The pic is pretty bad, but you can sorta see the blue/lavender cast in two of the rods, compared to the pinkish tone of the others.
