When choosing the right color for your water pipe, the bold, vibrant, satisfying tone of Blue Cheese glass certainly makes it a common choice among borosilicate glassblowers. Blue Cheese glass is usually very dense and easily mixed. Many glassblowers, such as Haha Glass from Asheville, North Carolina, prefer to use this color blue on its own for vibrant pops of color and to catch the eye. Variations of this glass include diet blue cheese, baby blue cheese, and silver blue cheese...because Cheddar is so last season.
Living up to it's name, Illuminati glass is one of the most popular and sought after colors on a borosilicate bong. Its unique trick of glowing under UV light makes Illuminati the main focal point of many pieces. It can make for an eccentric accent, or it can even go unnoticed until the smoker shines a UV light on the piece! When not under a UV light, Illuminati glass has a pale yellow-green tint, as opposed to the eye popping neon green color it turns under the UV.
Slyme glass has become increasingly popular, and we can thank the proto-smokers back in the 1990's who spent their Saturday nights watching Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards for this one. Slyme tends to be tricky to work with, but when done right, it can range from a radioactive green to an intense pink and a deep, hypnotizing purple. Identifying Slyme glass is easy from the tiny bubbles trapped within it.
The perfect name for this alluring color in the borosilicate glass family, Serendipity is less common but still makes for some outstanding glass. From afar, Serendipity has an amber/honey hue, but upon closer inspection reveals warming pink and blue undertones. Serendipity glass can mostly be found on peach-themed or honey-themed pieces and pendants, but can even be found on some of the most impressive headies.
