Not really Michael. The quality of offhand american glass is not very good. It's mostly work that's been loaded up with frit to hide bubbles as a design. I tell people to consider making their own color because it makes their colors different and it costs a fraction of the price of rod.

Having stones that will cause checks in your base clear glass is simply dangerous and unacceptable if you're paying close to a dollar a lb for it. Being helpless to correct the sourcing problem is far worse.

So, I'd say make your own clear.
