What was added to this glass to make it blue?
Powdered cobalt glass, called smalt, has been historically important as a pigment in painting and pottery. It is colored to a deep powder blue hue using cobalt ions derived from cobalt oxide. Cobalt aluminate can be used in a similar way, and is now more common, often known as "cobalt blue".
