I will attach a bibliography about Vitrolite and Carrara to this response. I do not know where you could purchase it, since this "pigmented structural glass", the general term, is probably no longer made. However, I suggest that you do some searching on the Internet, to see if anyone has supplies of it for sale.
Our library participates in interlibrary loan: for your question, we can microfiche of trade catalogs and offer photocopies of articles.
Please let me know if you have any questions about this.
- Any Vitrolite or Carrara glass you find will be "hit or miss" from those who salvage. One person who has the most is the Vitrolite Specialist (www.vitrolitespecialist.com). That may be a good place to start. Also, the National Park Service has a brief (and outdated) history on the glass here: http://www.nps.gov/tps/how-to-preserve/briefs/12-structural-glass.htm

This decorative glass company sells black Carrara type glass again.
