Nice unknowns with oxblood

Champion Agate Pennsboro WV. .  No horsehair was used.  The thin narrow oxblood just reminded someone of horsehair. The horsehair oxblood is sometimes more brown than red like most oxblood.  It is glass and when made was at 1700-2000F degrees. Red hot flowing glass rolled into a marble. Any horsehair would disappear before it touched the hot glass.

They used to use apples to get the nice ruby red color in some Champions. right?  I remember reading that entertaining story.  Do you all know how many felines gave their lives over the years in Japan just so America could continue to enjoy our cats eyes.  I believe the formula was 50 eyeballs per pound of base glass.
