Is it hard to tell the zapped from the unzapped? Roy
Backlighting helps. Amber glass has a yellow/orange/red hue. Zapped glass (containing selenium) looks muddy brown/grey like the two in the attached picture.

OK, that makes them easy to spot when you put the real brown bottles next to them... Thank you. I will be looking out for the zapped ones next time I go to a show. I will ask them if they are zapped, if I see any, just for fun... Roy
