I am sending photocopies of two pages from Carder's notebook, dated 1912, that list the ingredients for Aurene; Aurene Blue; Aurene Blue for casing or Calcite; Aurene Green; Aurene Opaline; and Aurene Brown (to your postal mailing address). I found no information about application or annealing schedule in his notes. The notebooks are part of Frederick Carder's archives in the Rakow Research Library.

You may find more specific technical information in the resources listed in the attached bibliography for "iridizing" which covers a variety of sources from the time period (including Tiffany).

If you wish to obtain copies of any of the items listed, please contact your local library. The Rakow Research Library is a member of the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC); your library can contact us through OCLC or they may mail an Interlibrary Loan form to us. You may request up to five items at a time. We send photocopies of articles and microfiche copies of our books (if they have been microfilmed) through Interlibrary Loan for four weeks use.
