# CrystalEdge® Glass Types
Jade Glass is commonly referred to by the trophy industry as green glass. Although Jade is a relatively clear glass, when it is viewed from the edge it is a green jade color. It is very hard glass that is capable of being finished to an extremely high polish level with cerium oxide. The larger the blank, the darker the shade of green the edge will appear. The green shade comes from iron ore content that is present in the silica sand, which is used to produce this type of glass. Our Jade Glass is available in the following thicknesses - 3/16” (5mm), 1/4" (6mm), 3/8” (9.5mm), 1/2" (12mm) & 3/4" (19mm). We also use 1/8” (3.2mm) and 1” (25mm) for custom products, however availability is often limited for 25mm thick Jade.
### Crystal Clear
Crystal Clear is often referred to as Clear Glass. It has a slightly less hardness level than Jade Glass, but due to its clarity our high polish edge work creates a beautiful reflection with a slight blue sparkle. Crystal Clear Glass is more expensive to manufacture than Jade Glass and therefore our prices reflect this difference. Our Crystal Clear Glass is available in the following thicknesses - 1/8” (3.2mm), 3/16” (5mm), 1/4" (6mm), 3/8” (9.5mm), 1/2" (12mm) & 3/4" (19mm). We also use 1” (25mm) for custom products, however availability is very limited.
### Black Glass
Black Glass has the same hardness level as Crystal Clear Glass and it exhibits a rich dark black edge when polished by our advanced technology edging machines. This glass is used to manufacture our special black trophy bases. Black Glass is known as Graylite® or GrayliteII® and is manufactured in the U.S. by P.P.G. Industries. For Trophy blanks it is available in 1/4" (6mm) thickness for beveled or mitered squares and rectangles, and in 3/8" (10mm) thickness for trophy bases. It is also available for custom glass blanks.
### Blue Glass
Blue Glass also has the same hardness level as Crystal Clear Glass. Our Blue Glass is known as Azurlite® or Azuria® and is manufactured in the U.S. by P.P.G. Industries. This glass is available in 1/4” (6mm) thick.
