I'm clearing out the closest and I came across a drum of Fenton ruby cullet that came to me in error from Gabbert. They explained to me at the time that they were paid and happy and that I had some glass, even if it was the wrong stuff. Toobad. There is about 300 lb. or more. I have no idea what it is compatible with but I melted some once and in my glory hole it turned opaque similar to a sample of Q-216 antique red that I have. This will have to be picked up in Cocoa Beach, FL. I can't remember what I paid for it, it was probably 20+years ago. Asking $100.

I'll take it Steve! I have a line I used to make with this glass and excited to melt it again. I'll pm you with my info.
Thanks!

that stuff, if first gathered and then cased in an enamel white and then again in the ruby is really beautiful stuff.

I think I still have about 50 lb. of the ruby, that should find a new home. as well as quite a few other colored cullets. black, white, didymium pink, blue etc.
