YOUGHIOGHENY OPALESCENT GLASS
Founded in 1976 by John W. Triggs, one of the industry's leading color experts, Youghiogheny continues the timeless tradition of instilling color and texture into every hand-crafted sheet produced at its Connellsville, Pennsylvania factory.

World-renowned for uncompromising quality, stained glass artists have turned to Youghiogheny time and again for its unique color artistry born of technology, to recreate the magnificence of nature's palate for infusion into their unique creations. The glass that Youghiogheny produces falls into 3 basic categories; Stipple, Reproduction Glass, and High Strike.


STIPPLE - A glass unlike no other in the glass industry. Instead of using an opal to difuse and opacify light, Stipple has a crystalline inner structure that disperses light, allowing color to come through the glass unaltered by the opal. You'll find the glass has an unrivaled depth, intensity and clarity of color. Magnificent glass for both lampshades and windows.

REPRODUCTION GLASS - An opal based glass formulated to reproduce the color combinations in Tiffany's lampshades. Most of the colorings are 3 and 4 color streakies with beautiful complexity.

HIGH STRIKE - An opal based glass with mottles. Not as complex as Reproduction Glass with most of the colorings being 2 or 3 color mixes. The mottling makes it an excellent choice for foliage, backgrounds and flowers.
