You Break, You Buy

I found these gorgeous purple bottles at the Pickle Barrel Trading Post in Globe, Arizona.

There were all sizes of bottles, gas lamps, bowls, glass insulators, and more, all in shades of purple.  The display looked so pretty with the light streaming in and I stood there for a while thinking about where I needed purple glass in my house. 
There was a sign on the shelf that said glass from the early 1900s turned purple with ultra-violet light.  The manganese used in this old glass retains the ultra-violet light and turns the glass these beautiful shades of purple.
