We have enjoyed shipping our items all over the world and are happy to offer most of our items to international buyers. Yet insuring International parcels is very expensive so PLEASE NOTE; we do NOT insure International orders unless winning buyer specifically requests this and we are able to provide an insurance quote. We do not falsify information on the Customs Form, such as a price other than what the actual purchase price is, so please do not request us to do so. We ship several times a week and send payment acknowledgments and shipping confirmations. Your prompt payment will assure a very quick turn-around time. IMPORTANT NOTE: If our shipping charge is much more than the actual shipping cost, we will refund the excess so what YOU pay for shipping/insurance is very close to, if not exactly, the ACTUAL shipping costs! This is especially important for foreign buyers to know as most of our foreign shipping charges are rough estimates. What makes this a genuinely great bottle is the SWAMP ROOT MEDICINE embossing. Yes, just a great looking bottle, climaxed by the amethyst tone. You will RARELY find one of these bottles in any color other than aqua, as 99% of them were blown in aqua glass. Yet here is one that is a flattering lavender amethyst colored. You hear about old purple or SCA (sun colored amethyst) glass, and in general terms, here is how it works: The purple color is the result of having manganese in the glass. Manganese is a mineral, a rock, that was mined, crushed, and pulverized into a powder, then added to vats of molten liquid glass, and acted as a decolorizing agent to turn the natural aqua-tinted glass into a pure crystal clear colorless glass. But when exposed to the ultraviolet rays of the sun or other sources of UV rays, it triggers a chemical reaction and the manganese oxidizes and turns a wonderful amethyst color. With few exceptions, only glass blown before 1914 has manganese in it and will turn sun-colored-amethyst. So a bottle has to be old enough and had to be blown with manganese in the glass, in order to turn purple. But it's all worth it as, not only does this purple/amethyst color make this a great looking bottle, but it also authenticates it as being truly antique, all of the right stuff, check it out!
