I like to move my mantle display around every few years. It was Oxblood, cream and basalt glass from the 1850's-1890's but I didn't really like having glass that old above a fire place that is actually used in winter so I decided to move in some slightly younger glass 1890's-1920. I tried a few combinations. Light glass gets washed out up there.. dark iridescent glass is turned into just dark glass with no iridescence plainly showing.. So I ended up settling on this green display! Not sure why people dis on the green so much. It's always been one of my favorite colors. I've heard hte mantra of it was cheap to produce.. but I kind of think that more refers to bottle green rather than the nice forest, Chrome or maigrun. It's hard to tell from this pic but a good portion of this display is aventurin.
