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.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
