what causes the edge color of starfire and Onami Crystal™ textured low iron glass?

Starfire glass is also called a low iron or optically clear glass. In “clear” glass it’s the iron content of the silica that gives it the green tint. However by reducing the iron content in starfire glass and chemically masking other impurities Starfire glass appears to be optically clear when looking through a piece of starfire glass.

However, if starfire low iron glass is considered optically clear, what causes the edge color ?

For instance if a normal green tinted heavy glass shower enclosure or wall partition is incorporated into an environment the colors of the tile or other design elements will be altered by the heavy green tint of the glass, influencing and sometimes changing the entire visual impact of the area.

However if a shower enclosure, wall partition, door or entry glass inserts or a custom textured glass counter or custom textured glass tabletop is made from either smooth Starfire or Onami Crystal™ (surface sculpted textured starfire low iron glass) the colors of the tile, stone or other design elements will remain true to the original design concept.
