Standard Clear Glass
When it comes to edge color for glass, some things are never as clear as they appear in the showroom. It’s an unfortunate fact: when you order glass for countertops, tables, glass doors, room dividers or shower enclosures, the edge color gradually changes according to the thickness of the glass. Look at the edge of almost any piece of standard clear furniture glass and you’ll notice a green cast. That effect is exaggerated as the glass becomes thicker or longer.
In addition to getting darker as it gets thicker, edge color may also be affected by other factors, such as the amount of ambient lighting or the way a shaped edge is contoured.
The Edge of Starphire Glass
If a dark green or black edge color is undesirable, PPG offers an alternative.

Even at a length of 130 inches, Starphire glass edge maintains a pleasing blue-green aesthetic that brings more light into interior spaces, while offering unmatched levels of brightness, color fidelity, clarity and visual excitement.
