    Hi,Got these at a auction that also came with a crystal Italian compote that is very expensive looking,the compote has a Italian marble base,there is 5 pieces total but could only post four pics,(other one is a pear and a bannana) I showed them in the different stages it turns when put in light or dark,I really like these pieces and I think is my best finds to date,info in title is what I think they are from research,I purchased the five fruit pieces and the compot for a total of $12.00 no one bid on compote,I was talking to auction worker about a prior purchase so didnt see right away,auctioneer added the 5 murano fruit pieces to help "sell" the compote,one person bid against me and dropped out quick,I didnt know what I had but auctioneer told me not to just flip sell to look it up because she felt I got the steal of the auction,I put away for a few days and to my surprise the glass had changed from purple to blue so made me look into more and discovered I had a great find,thank-you for looking!!!!!

      I really like the alexandrite (neodymium) glass myself. I have a recent post with a swordfish that I didn't realize was neodymium when I first purchased it. It is always a good surprise...cheers
