I  was at a show about a month ago and I was showcasing some beautiful gems from Haystack.  I had brought with me one of my favorites lavender bottles from late  1800's early 1900's.   The magnetite in the glass changes the clear glass to rich colors of purple and lavender when exposed to sun over the years.  ..... I digress..... at the show I met a unique new friend who dives, and he was kind enough to send me some pictures of his beautiful bottle collection that he has recovered from dives ..... although these bottles were not exposed to sunshine deep at the bottom of the waters... they are so truly beautiful and check out the seashells that have grown inside of one!!
