Picked up a couple new jars today the half-pint lightning clear and a ball perfect Mason. Still trying to decide which color this perfect Mason is there's like three different styles of Amber in the red book haven't had a chance to early research it yet

Will love to see the ball cleaned up, almost looks like it was nuked as there is no record of that color for that style of jar and as it sits has that sickly brown color common of nuked jars.

Early glass was decolorized using manganese which when exposed to radiation ( be it sun or artificial ) will turn varying degrees of purple, later glass that was decolorized with selenium will turn a sickly straw or brown color. The intensity of the change depends on many factors including strength of exposure and length of exposure. Here is a site that explains it.
clear to purple
another good one

I agree with Coreya that this looks nuked. The swirls could be from being buried as opposed to other colors in the glass. I have found quite a few jars with swirls like that out of the ground

…..Cool jar though! Definitely has the buried in the ground look. Kinda wondering if it was nuked before or after it buried?
