Photographing Boro

Boro is one of the most beautiful glasses to play with. The sparkle is like no other. It is, however, difficult to get good pictures of. What is the true color?
When in sunlight, the colors play and brighten. The pinks seem especially clean. When indoors, the light no longer sparkles through the glass and the art pieces appear somewhat dark.
Getting a good picture that is representative of the true colors is always the goal of an artist. I think I am going to go with slightly shaded photos. They appear slightly bluer but value wise is closer to what the marble would look like indoors....
Below are the comparisons between shooting in full sun and in shade.
Neither photo has been color corrected. The images are straight off my camera and cropped for size....
