Below are the responses to my question.  Photography stores should be able to 
supply these products.

I _think_ this is what you want.

Emde Products Inc., Torrance CA 90505
  Emde ultrathin 2x2 aluminum slide binders with 35 mm foil masks
(The glass is included in the package, even though not in the name).
I got them from a local photosupply special-order.  (I think Emde only
sells wholesale.)  If your local photo supplier cannot order 'em, e-mail
me or write and I will get ordering info for you.

you could try the agfa 35 mm slide jackets.  these are made of glass, and are
the holders for 35 mm slide film, you just cut them up and put them in the
holders, i used them or putting sections and small mini gels (pharmacia phast
gels).  they are perfect.  they are double, very thin glass sandwich type,

best of luck
