The top circles remind me of deck prisms used on ships to let the light in. They were clear and not blue and purple.

Half Glassed


I would bet that it is "sun-purple" glass. It started out clear and gradually turned purple over the years do to the manganese content.

That pic brought back memories of being a kid. I had a flashback to those little glass disks in the sidewalk between the police station & the library. I always wondered what purpose they served. To let light into the "secret place" below the sidewalk.
