*******

A precious commodity in the ancient world, glass was prized for its resemblance to crystal as well as its other aesthetic qualities.

The iridescence present on this example is the result of a series of chemical reactions between the glass and the environment in which it was buried for several centuries.

“Neither gold nor crystal can compare with it, nor can it be had for jewels or gold.†(Job 28:17)
