    Black glass H.K. Mulford. Commonly found in amber. Even when held up to the direct rays of the Sun....no color except a faint hint of deep purple. The last photo is of a normal colored one.

      Is it heavily irradiated?

      SpiritBear....
      This bottle is as it was dug. Based on another comment you posted, perhaps this batch of glass had a lot of manganese in it. However, as they are almost always found in amber, it seems unlikely as the addition of manganese was meant to produce a crystal clear coloration as opposed to aqua (which is the natural color of glass).
    3. SpiritBear, 3 years ago
      Correct. Natural radiation doesn't leave them so dark. If it was dug up like this, and not put through a hospital-grade steriliser, then it was likely the other chemical additions of the glass itself. Very unusual to be in purple for a utility bottle, though.

      Very unusual indeed. I have added a photo of a “normal” colored one.
