Someone want sell me a crystal glass tank, the edge of the glass looks lighter green instead of normal darker green. Is that genuine crystal glass?

I saw in a utube video, a guy claim that real ones are blue in colour at the edge.

Crystal glass or low iron glass also got diff grade. Those used for tanks are typically slightly tinted when viewed on the thickness side.

Good acrylic tank then is clear.
