Roman Glass
Ancient Roman coins minted between 240 and 410 A.D.and circulated throughout the Roman Empire, which stretched from Britain to the border of Persia.
Coins were made by hand by inserting a metal blank between two dies and striking the upper die with a heavy hammer, so the coins are not perfectly round.
Most coins feature the head of the Roman Emperor on the observe.
The reverse types are varied, reflecting both current concerns, history and mythology. The most common themes are military, reflecting the political dominance of the Roman Army.
These ancient Roman Glass fragments originate from parts of ancient blown glass vessels of the Roman Byzantine Empire between 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 which appear on the glass were 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."
Although these glass fragments are solid and do not break easily, it is advisable to handle them with care.

Glass is one of the most ancient and first materials used by man. Like everything else in the Universe, glass has its own set of energies. It is said to represent and carry the energies of transformation, rebirth, focus and communication. The colors of the glass bring the vibrations of those specific color energies. The blue/green shades of Roman Glass are believed to open communication. It is also believed to give the gift of freedom to pursue new ideas and protection from fears and anxieties connected with the demands of others.
