1/2" tall).  Cranberry glass
(or Gold Ruby glass as it is
known in Europe) is a red
glass made by adding
gold(III) chloride to the
molten glass.  Cranberry
glass is made in craft
production rather than in
large quantities, due to the
high cost of the gold and
the delicate mixing process
required. The gold chloride
is made by dissolving gold
in a solution of nitric acid
and hydrochloric acid (aqua
regia), producing a colloid.
The glass is typically hand
blown or molded. The
finished, hardened glass is
a type of colloid, a solid
phase (gold) dispersed
inside another solid phase
(glass).
