I am attaching a patent filed by John La Farge in 1879 which gives an overview of the chemistry he applied to making opalescent glass. I am also attaching some recipes of opalescent glass from the Bournique archives we hold. Bournique made opalescent glass for Tiffany's window designs at the Kokomo Glass Co in Indiana. There is quite a bit about opalescent glass, as you can imagine, as well as disrupted claims as to who is the originator of opalescent glass used for stained glass (opalescent glass itself already had been around for many years). If you want other formulas for opalescent glass there are many. Let me know if you were looking for something else entirely than what I am sending you!

Best,
