Alexandrite is the rarest of Heisey colors; it can be a pale blue-green under normal light, but in sunlight or ultraviolet light, it glows with a pink-lavender hue.

Heisey is believed to have made a few pieces in milk glass in its early production years and likely produced vaseline glass as well in the early s, although not in large quantities.

King home, which features a Greek Revival style. The museum maintains a significant collection of Heisey glass.

Overall, the only lacking part of the book is the fact it deals with only the rarest of Heisey and only touches on what was available to the author of the book.
