types of glass

What glass is easier to cut and which one is most brillant in color.
Most cathedral glasses, by any manufacturer, are easier to cut then opalescent. White opalescent is the hardest glass (in a scale from soft to hard) and the most difficult to cut, although some manufacturers white is easier then others.
If you are looking for really easy to cut, try Spectrum cathedral blues and greens, single color, no streaks or texture.
The most brilliant in color is red, yellow and orange.
