I have the pricing for the prisms. Each glass blank is about $150.
Each surface has a fine blanchard ground finish. The cost to polish two
sides of each prism is $1,400! That makes for a very expensive prism.
Needless to say, I won't be buying one. That's about a factor of 2x
what I was willing to spend. Oh well. If anything realistic turns up,
I'll keep you posted.

I had some 4" glass cubes made and had one surface polished. The cubes
are gorgeous, the polished surface is perfect. The cost to polish the
one surface was $300.
