This glass is made by Farbglasshütte Lauscha in the German town of Lauscha. Lauscha glass is 104 coe and is all hand-pulled. Since it is hand-pulled, it is often easier to get hold of in larger diameter rods.

Lauscha also makes glass for human prosthetics in a different coe. They sell 104 tubing and filigrana as well.

Lauscha clear is of very high quality, but may not be compatible with silver glass.

SNT 220 5 would be a very dark transparent red. The full number also includes the rod thickness - for 6-8mm rods it will have 0608 added to the end.

Specials and Milky Ways

Some of these are one-offs, some have been made repeatedly. The milky ways are typically translucent and reactive. They opacify with heating, but working them cool and reducing them before they go in the kiln can help keep them translucent.
