Roman glass is a rare material discovered in archaeological excavations around Israel. 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 enable the formation of what we call Roman Glass. Over time, the buried glass shards absorb minerals from the surrounding soil, 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 with sparkling flecks of pink and orange. No two fragments of this ancient glass are completely alike, so your gorgeous piece of Roman Glass jewelry is completely unique to you!
Please Note: Patina is incredibly delicate. To preserve it, do not allow the glass to come in contact with water.
