He means Borosilicate glass.
Maybe, if you buy a Lunar, our Borosilicate Glass XXL bottles are interesting for your:

So a 2 gallon rocket glitter lamp is near 500 usd... Is the glitter made of gold ?   All glass has heat resistance.. its not these lamps will be at 300f in some lab experiement beaker then imediatly tossed into a bath of freezing water or liquid nitroge.. Even then.. windshields on a car can be covered in ice.. you can toss boiling water on them and nothing will happen.  

Sorry i just dont see the justification of the price ? but im probably ignorant

Yes you are ;-)
Try using a standard glass, many people tried that and failed. It will break 100%.
Even Standard Lunar bottles and Grande bottles break, when you use too much heat, or if you are too close with the bulb.
On a tall glass bottle the heat difference is very big from top to bottom.
The Glitter and Fluid cost 180 Euro, I cant give you details on the production process, but if you would see it, you would not think the price is unfair.

Yes I did misspell it

Damn auto correcx

Borosilicate Glas

Otherwise, know as the substandard version called  Pyrex

Never heard of thst b4.. nore is it on google.. Did you misspell it .

where can i buy colossus? afaik all are sold already

Windshields are laminated glass so when they break they don't dissect your head

QUALITY Glitter fluid is expensive, it's not just water

Cheaper versions simply stop running or the glitter decomposes in a few months

Here is what happens when you apply too much heat to regular Glass 


Also, bear in mind the USD price is due to the wild variance of exchange rates of currency.

I know how much currencies go for lol.

As for your exploding lamp, how hot did you get it ?  Ive boiled a few 52oz lamps where the wax started boiling itself and then i poured ambient water in them..  Thats over 200f but thsi is with the tops off so honestly how hot did that lamp actually get..   The grandes so far for me have only gotten to 126f.. and your globe probably broke due to inside pressure caused by the heat because your cap looks like its on.. Not the heat itself.  The bulb against the glass i can understand yes

Also the windshield thing, you need to read what i said again.  I said if you have a frozen windshield and toss hot water on it, it wont break unless the glass has a hole in it from a rock or something..   I didnt say why the glass didnt shatter, i said it didnt break at all.   I work on cars like you do lava lamps i know what laminated glass is..  

NOW if you pour cold water on a HOT windshield it will crack.. lol

I was using a heating element, not a lamp

But this has happened with a light bulb in the past as well

The volume is more than a 52oz, thus the expansion is greater as well

The point is, Different types of glass cost different amounts of money

Yea i hear ya.. zim not arguing.. i just like to debate facts lol and opinions lol

Maybe it is possible to build the XXL Bottles with a standard glass and maybe it will not break.
But 10 L Water splashing all over your floor with sticky and nasty liquids... you dont want this :-)
Important thing is, to get the whole bottle tempered.
If you buy a flower vase in a home deco shop, they are very poor glass and not tempered.
They will break because of that.
