Purple coloring in insulators is caused by the addition of manganese, a de-colorizer originally used to remove the green or aqua cast caused by the iron inevitably found in batch sand (all glass colorants are metals or metal oxides). After exposure to radiation-- either natural solar or artificial-- the manganese ionizes to a purple form; the more manganese, the darker the purple eventually becomes.
