Mark has some in his basement and I bet you can talk him out of it...

Maybe Mastodons?

Standard Ceramics at the time had the one total truck of it. One Time, never again. As is often the case with glassblowers, when they find a good thing they commit the fatal flaw of telling all their friends. This was true of Keystone Cullet, once a fine product but a year later, not really.

Once that truck full was gone it was gone. Bob Held extolling its virtues at the '68 NCECA conference. From that point on? I think I got a few pounds. The grease came out and stuck to the side of the bag. Best fire opal I've ever made.
