Roman glass is a rare and wonderful material discovered in archaeological excavations around the Holy Land. Glass was once a prized commodity reserved for royalty and the wealthy, but became increasingly common throughout the Roman Empire. Israel is one of the few places in the world where geological and climatic conditions coincide to enable the formation of what we call Roman Glass. Buried glass absorbs minerals from the surrounding soil over time, and the soil’s unique mineral content creates an exquisite ‘patina’ – the delicate coloring of this precious material.
Roman Glass ranges in color from iridescent hues of blues and greens to shimmering purples and yellows and sparkling flecks of pink and orange. No two fragments of this ancient material are completely alike, so your gorgeous piece of Roman Glass jewelry is completely unique to you!
Note: Patina is incredibly delicate. To preserve it, do not allow glass to come in contact with water.
