Ruby Red

I read somewhere that Ruby Red glass was no longer made and dismissed it as rubbish at the time. However, when making an order today with my supplier, I thought I would pass the question to them. They cannot confirm that its no longer made but did say that they had very limited stock.. EGL sent them a small batch and stated that that was the last... Gloucester Tube - very limited supply. NOS Masonlite - more of stock but of course no longer in production.
I was informed that the Chinese have been approached to produce PROPER Ruby red but don't want to touch it... the standard Chinese stuff just doesn't have the beautiful depth of colour we get with our Italian glass.
Can anyone confirm its demise???... if its true, it is indeed a sad state of affairs in how in a short few years, the manufacturers are willing to jump ship. Ive had a large increase in neon work and starting to think I may have ridden out the LED is a gift from god wave.. it would be a real tragedy to have the choice of stock reduce just as neon once again finds itself a viable market
