I've never felt that casing in clear benefitted the overal color of the work and always added a mismatch issue potential to the mix. The phosphate seems to naturally fluoresce without rare earths. While I don't know what Dudley sold you the stuff for, I last bought it at what I thought a fair price ten years back and that was at $8.00 a lb. That was well below average pricing. Usually it was far worse than that. My favorite memories are buying Selenium for $ 4.00 lb in fifty pound tins in El Paso where the copper smelters worked. That's sure gone but Eveline bringing it to me from Shanghai for nothing seems better.
