I've seen a number of Mark's ruby ambrotype's and they are beautiful! I
believe it's safe to say that *ruby* ambrotypes are simply "regular"
ambrotypes (i.e. wet collodian on japon-black backed glass) made on ruby
(red) colored glass - rather than on clear glass....

See them if you can! (And, Congrats to Mark if he's still on this list!!!)
