Here is a chart I found in The Illustrated Guide to Collecting Bottles, Cecil Munsey, Hawthorn books, 1970:

Copper, Selenium, Gold--------Reds
Nickel, Managanses-------------Purples
Chromium, Copper---------------Greens
Cobalt, Copper---------------------Blues
Carbon, Nickel---------------------Browns
Iron-------------------------------------Greens, Yellows (Amber)
Selenium-----------------------------Yellows, Pinks
Tin, Zinc------------------------------Opal, Milk glass
Iron Slag------------------------------"black glass"-Dark Olives, Dark Browns

"For example it takes one ounce of gold to create sixty pounds of ruby-red glass." pg 37
"The technique of adding small amount of manganese to a glass mixture to produce clear glass had been known but hardly bothered
with since its discovery before the time of Christ.
From around 1880, when the demand for clear glass forced manufacturers to perfect the technique of decolorizing with manganese,
until approximately 1915, at which time World War I cut of the main source of manganese-Germany-manganese was America's
most widely used decolorizing agent. By 1916, glassmakers were using the more stable but also more expensive decolorizing agent,
selenium." pg 55
"The amount of color decolorized will assume depends on two variables: how much of a decolorizing agent was originally used; how
long the glass has been exposed to ultra-violet light." pg 55

Amethyst Color
The beautiful amethyst or lavender color of this glass is a result of a curious chemical reaction among certain compounds used in
the manufacture of glass.The natural color resulting from the basic ingredients of glass,sand,soda,and lime,is varying shades of
aqua,or green.Merchants of the mid 19th recognized the value of being able to display their products in clear glass vessels,so a
compound,called manganese,was added to batches of raw glass at the factories,the result being the finished product of a crystal
clear container!!. A side effect of the clarified glass with manganese is the ability to change into a brilliant dark amethyst when
exposed to ultra violet rays over a period of time.Most of the manganese used in glass factories came from Germany,WW1 broke
out in 1914, it became much harder to obtain manganese. Other oxide decolorizers were then used instead, so most bottles made
after 1918 or so don’t turn amethyst.This bottle has been purpled by a process called “irradiation”, which is a safe and permanent
process which does the same thing as many years of exposure to natural sunlight, except much faster.Those of you who live in high
sun areas,such as the Western  American Desert,may have noticed dark purple shards around old ghost towns,or house sites.
Compare these bottles to the shards and you will see an identical result. Real Desert Glass is hard,if not impossible to find anymore.
