    I don't unfortunately :D

    All my supplies come from the UK on visits to family, I'll see if my wife knows the Turkish word though - she says it's "beyaz cam"

    Thinking about it I saw flashed opal glass here in Turkey yesterday in Izmir, used as a desk-top in an opticians, just find your local glass shop/merchant every town usually has one or two.

    If "beyaz cam" isn't the right words say like an opal light bulb & point one out :D
