It is likely that one of the things Mr. Carder wanted to try at Stevens & Williams while he was their chief designer, and that he was not allowed to pursue, was iridescent glass.

Tiffany and Loetz had already developed this technique and were using it to win awards and accolades worldwide. A gold iridescent glass was one of the first glasses that Mr. Carder attempted as soon as the furnaces were up and running at Steuben. The first trial piece was executed in 1904 at his new Steuben factory.

The early Aurene had soft colors that were true to the look of the unearthed Roman glass. Over the years it became so much more with brilliant highlights of blue, pink and red strongly emphasized against a glowing gold iridescence.
