Irradiation "fears" ???
I didn’t know this was a forum for questioning other peoples way of speaking.. I’m just here for jar collecting. Irradiated jars/bottles are a huge pain in the butt for those trying to preserve the history … And when buying online there is no way to do a test. No reason to attack.. what was confusing or irrational about the fear or that a jar might be irradiated? keep it civil please. also, check blue glassware on ebay .. beautiful examples with no bids. i see many tables of irradiated blue jars and bottles at the local flea markets. irradiation was once called the “atomic bomb” of glass collecting.

So, this Beaver is irradiated? wow, I knew bottles and jars could be turned royal Purple but had no idea they could be turned Blue like that ...wowsers ...I always assumed the fantasy colors were being new made in foreign countries... Learn something new every day..SMH
