I'm thinking the strontium has application in transparent glasses too. Volf mentions that it was being used to replace up to half the lead content for TV tube glasses. If I'm remembering correctly, without digging out Volf and comparing numbers, it gives it a greater modulus of elasticity like lead. Not to mention it's probably makes for a more clean "crystal" appearance for transparents.
