Why do some glass colors cost more than other colors.

Home Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Glass Information Why do some glass colors cost more than other colors.

There are many factors to this.

  1. Origin of the color plays a large roll.  Glass made in America costs more than glass made in China due to labor and material costs
  2. Minerals used in the color play a very big roll.  Gold is not cheap
  3. The batch size plays a large roll also.  The more they make it, the cheaper it can be made.  So new colors are more expensive as it takes a new crucible just for that new color.
