About Roman Glass:
This unique glass was first created in the Roman Empire. The glass had a bluish-aqua tint to it and was used mainly for bowls and vessels in all shapes and sizes. For almost 2000 years, Roman glass shreds and vessels have been buried underground, creating beautiful colors, waiting to be discovered.
The colors that can be seen in Roman glass today are a result of the glass reacting with climactic and geological elements - heat, water, various minerals in the earth - for Thousands of years. All these elements came together and caused many chemical reactions that resulted in brilliant, iridescent, Roman Glass.
In the past 100 years or so, archaeologists excavating areas that were under ancient Roman rule - particularly in Israel - have been coming across Roman glass relics. Intact vessels can be seen in museums around the world, but broken pieces are often transformed into jewelry, made mostly out of gold and silver. The pieces of Roman glass that are incorporated into the jewelry are found at excavations throughout the Holy Land.
