Rock crystal or glass

Thanks to all for suggestions how I might verify that I bought rock
crystal and not glass. I did the scratch test, Kay, and so far, so
good. M J St. Amand, I did indeed see the black ink line on white
paper double - how interesting! Thank you for that. And Jerry in
Kodiak, when I can find my sunspecs I’ll have a go at that. I
remembered I had a cheapo 10x loupe and examining the spheres
through that revealed no swirls or bubbles, just a little surface
dust, so thank you, too. I now feel confident I can call my pieces
rock crystal.

The Orchid Digest is a remarkable resource and I appreciate all who
make it so!
