|Copper ruby vs Selenium/Cadmium and "striking"|

"The demonstration was of the making of a small, teardrop-shaped ear bob. This item is made without a wire insert from a clear-glass rod that turns ruby red when heated."
Am I mistaken in thinking that lead glass with copper [later: gold glass also strikes to ruby] is what requires reheating to "strike" the color? This is not necessary with selenium/cadmium ruby glass?
Could the duskier red beads on the left in my photos be copper red?
