Amberina was patented by Joseph Locke of the New England Glass Company, and was produced extensively there. It was also produced a lot by the successor company the Libbey Glass Company at Toledo, Ohio, into the 1890s.[1] It is still being made today. The glass varies in colour from red to amber. Glass which is shaded in colours from blue to amber is known as Blue Amberina or Bluerina.[2]

Amberina is made of an amber glass containing some gold). Its distinct colouring develops with applied reheating and cooling.[1]
