ROMAN GLASS & GEMSTONES

ABOUT GEMSTONES

There are over 200 types of stones, minerals and crystals that can be considered semi precious gemstones. To qualify as a gem, the specimen should be hard and tough to resist scratching and have beautiful clarity, colour or 'fire'. Value is based on rarity and rare quality. Throughout history, gemstones have been seen as symbols of wealth and power. Gemstones have also been offered as prestigious gifts. Nearly all have been fashioned into beads or pendants for making beaded gemstone jewelry. Examples include amethyst, carnelian, rose quartz, topaz, agate, jasper, jade, malachite, and turquoise. 

 

ABOUT OPAL GEMSTONES

So what is Roman Glass?

The Roman Empire is credited with building a great civilization renowned for its artistic and technological achievements. 
At the peak of its power nearly 2000 years ago, Rome controlled the entire Mediterranean Sea area. The industrialization of glass production is considered one of its most significant technological accomplishments.

During this time, Israel became a major glass-making center. It was an industrial revolution and glass, once a rarity found only in the homes of royalty and the very wealthy, became commonly used.

The Roman Glass in these fine jewelry is excavated in Israel, in archaeological sites dating back to the period of the Romans nearly 2000 years ago. 

Roman glass cannot be duplicated artificially. The glass has been exposed to oxide-rich damp soil for nearly 2000 years. As a result to this exposure, stunning unique formations rich with colors and shapes occurred at outer layer called patina. These colors vary depending on the minerals and the conditions to which the glass has been exposed. Every piece of glass is unique and enables you to literally wear history!
