Imperial "Aurora Jewels" Carnival Glass

(Cobalt Blue), Trademarked (IG) June 1970 - April 1972


The term "Aurora Jewels" came from a suggestion that a Imperial Glass salesman had. He originally had used the name "aurora borealis," which denotes the shimmering Northern lights. There was concern about the word "borealis" so then the word Jewel was coined and then the color was called "Aurora Jewels."  The color was described as "shimmering iridescence gleams on satin-rich Cobalt blue." The Aurora Jewels line was introduced about July of 1970 and discontinued about April of 1972.
