How do i know if my tank glass is low iron?

I had a custom made tank a while ago and local store is no longer there.
Apparently is was supposed to be a high end tank, but i did not know much about low iron or starfire glass back then. If i put pics up here of the end of the glass tank, could you tell from the pics? Pics in the links:

It's really hard to tell from just pictures, but in my opinion it looks like low Iron glass.

In my opinion it looks like low in iron or what they would call optic white which is more expensive to buy .
The more Iron it has The greener it will look.
