The other day I published an article on 6 volt dangers and lens color. I said, red faded more than green. I was wrong, and to be even more dumb, this isn’t the first time. And to your joy, won’t be the last. Which this wrongness explains why many older lenses are blue. Now, of course I may be wrong, or blur the facts. But do you really care? We are talking color shifts in green glass.
Well it turns out its about manganese dioxide, and oxygen and heat can effect the color. As does Copper. Hey! I did try and look it up, but my pea brain could only absorb so much. But bottom line, your blue lens is supposed to be green.
Now, apparently some of this chemical stuff, actually makes red more red if that’s possible. This is old glass by the way. Because it was made a different way than today, which is mostly plastic. Okay, now this story just go bonkers.. Ready!
Ya warned you.. But, this is amazing if you hang with me. If you have plastic lenses, I bet they are milky or oxidized. And you may think you need to replace them.. One word… OFF! Here is one of those YOUTUBE videos on it. And since its on the internet, it must be real..
Man oh man I need a boat ride. Just 2 weeks! Just 2 weeks. COME ON DORA!
