Married with one of my Sea Glass Apothecary tops in the same shade of pale purple.
Only glass with the element manganese in it will turn purple in UV light.
Under UV radiation, the manganese combines with the oxides in the glass to create MnO2, a compound which absorbs light in the visible spectrum except that which creates the color purple. Therefore, as light passes through the glass, it appears purple.
I just think it's pretty:)
