Grubbycup Stash MIRON (violet glass) herb jars.

The fine folks over at mypharmjar.comĀ  have come out with a special “Grubbycup Stash” edition of herb storage jars. These are made from MIRON (violet) glass, which blocks out harmful light rays and protects the herbs inside. The lid has a handy humidity/temperature readout to assist in curing and proper storage.

There are other sizes as well, for example this 500 ml is a nice sized jar for personal use.

And for those who enjoy bragging rights, there is the mighty 2 liter apothecary jar.

I really like how the jars came out. The glass is a very dark violet blue that almost looks black. There are a variety of sizes to meet individual needs, and the humidity/temperature gauge is a handy touch. Very handy for keeping a little catnip or other herb within reach without light damaging (or displaying them) as with a clear container such as a mason jar (which perform much better when kept in a cool dark drawer).

Inspired by the alchemical violet glass used in ancient Egypt and in the middle ages in Europe, MIRON violet glass has an interestingly distinctive look. They are usual enough to act as a conversation piece in certain circles, especially if you happen to have one of my handmade pipes to accompany it.
