So, somewhere out there was "The Tigris and Euphrates" Color rod company. Who knew?

I am continually amazed at how far melters would go and how they knew in that time period what was really important.

Stibnite? Really, how did they ever know. They were going to NE Turkey and to Iraq to get it. (Stibnite yields Antimony) . I have several Corning publications on ancient glass analysis and its simply remarkable how well balanced those ancient glasses were.
