Ancient Glass Certificate
These glass fragments originated from parts of
ancient blown glass vessels of the
Roman - Byzantine Empire
between 1st-6th century AD
- shortly after glass was invented.
These glittering glass fragments were picked up on
ancient sites on the Holy Land.
Some fragments are transparent while others are colored.
The spectrum of colors which appear on the glass
were formed over hundreds of years.
The beautiful colors are the results of combined effects of climatic conditions
and the surrounding earth in which the glass was embedded.
Over the generations, layers of earth covered the glass,
giving it its unique color of "Patina".
Although these glass fragments are solid and do not break easily,
it is advisable to handle them with care.
An original design is created for every piece of glass
and no glass shape or color repeats itself,
so that each piece of Jewelry is unique.
