I don't think Oceanside is going to do it.

Cullet needs to be $1.75 lb to get anyone out of bed.
For something so simple, it's not. There's a lot that can go wrong, and does. Otherwise, I'd be on the phone With Eveline. She's a lot younger than I am.

Back before color rods, this was easier. You made your own color from the cullet you had or you made color based on your personal formula. Then the rod biz exploded without as much attention to physics as might have been made, but no one cared. Finished work was actually pretty cheap. Not true these days. You guys try to fit everything under the sun into a single piece and rarely test anything.

and, it's cristalica, not Crystalica...
