crappy picture but YES that's how it looked as new...
the crystals were whitish new and tended to YELLOW over time.
typically 25 year old crystals are yellow brown.
the color change largely depends on WHAT minerals or contaminants were IN the water absorbed...
and how WELL the double pane seals hold up, and solar flares.
political affiliations and what's for dinner or what was SMOKED inside the unit also affect color.
is there any shag carpet or bead/string doors or a disco ball in this unit?
check under the lav sink, my stash of windowpane
may still be taped there.
