A Community of Junior Carnival Glass Collectors  

Welcome To Iridescent Nation

“Iridescent Nation” is a club for carnival glass collectors between the ages of 1-18. Established in 2003 as the "Sunshine Club," Iridescent Nation helps young collectors discover and learn about carnival glass, pressed glass with lustrous, rainbow-like colors (called iridescence).
