I just bought some Ginko Green transparent glass -I know it strikes but looking for info as to anything needed to know about this glass -is it considered a copper glass? will it react and with what (lead, sulfur etc?) Could not find anything on the BE website.

Hi,

We should have user notes about Ginkgo Green in the About Our Glass section of the website in early February. It is a new product that we will start promoting in February. Testing for user notes is still in process. You have a very early shipment!

This PDF has info on the mineral content of the new glass, which should help answer your questions about reactivity:

This was linked to from an email I receive from D&L Art Glass, though I don't see it on the BE web site.

We are still completing testing on the new greens, and will upload the information when it is completed. We are still in the pre-order phase of some of these styles.

Here is a photo of the new greens. The ones in the bottom row are all strikers so those samples are fused:
