Thank you Vicky,
I remember that too. infact a cup and saucer made out of that exploded in front of me once. It was a coffee coloured glass. French, i think. Was in Luminarc?

So let me get this straight...you had an already partially broken part of the bottle in your palm (the bottom part), and it suddenly shattered/exploded? If that's the case, it seems like maybe a whole bunch of hairline fractures in the bottle suddenly released all their pressure and broke like safety glass, into many small pieces. Or am I way off?
