Roman Glass fragments originate from parts of ancient blown glass vessels of the Roman-Byzantine Empire between the 1st-6th centuries A.D. - shortly after glass was invented. These glittering glass fragments were picked up on ancient sites in the Holy Land. Some fragments are transparent while others are colored. The spectrum of colors that appear on the glass was formed over hundreds of years. The beautiful colors are the result of the combined effects of climatic conditions and the surrounding earth in which the glass was embedded. Over the generations, layer upon layer of earth covered the glass, giving the unique color of "patina."
