What is Roman Era Glass ?
Egyptians of the Old and Middle Kingdoms were among the first to use glass in their material culture. Centuries later the Roman Empire controlled much of the Mediterranean Sea region. The Romans appropriated Egyptian glass making methods and brought glass to the far reaches of their empire.
In modern times Roman Era Glass is excavated from ancient sites in Israel and across the Mediterranean. Usually broken, the glass shards are repurposed into beautiful and unique beads, often by local people and traded as a source of income.
Roman Era Glass has developed a unique iridescent patina and textures from NATURAL mineral deposits where the glass was buried, often in sandy soils, for nearly two millennia.
