ANCIENT ROMAN GLASS

SILVER PENDANT

This is a stunning glass bead specimen which is between 700 to 3000 years old.Thousands of years ago, the Romans came to Afghanistan to trade glass and teach the art of glass making. Buried for centuries, the discarded chunks had been thrown into a pit for recycling, a common practice in ancient times, but instead were forgotten.It was just recently re found.This piece we selected for its stunning colour-

Silver plated bail.

 

COLOUR-where does it come from.?

The brillant colours come from a chemical reaction from the glass when left in the soil for ions.We have a similar result in the opal fields in Lightning ridge Australia as when a bottle is left for years there are some faint opal like colours appear-but it is nothing compared to the   brillant colours from this ancient glass.The sands used to manufacture ancient glass contained manganese and iron ore  impurities which over centuries gives unique colours to the glass when left in the ground. The sands also contained sulphurs and glass blowers added minerals to colour enhance these glass vessels.They added red by mixing copper, and lead.

The owner Paul Sedawie is the current president of the Opal Association. and a member of the International colored stone Association.All my life i have enjoyed collecting minerals and fossils .I have been opal mining and now have a large opalized fossil collection of museum quality.I enjoy visiting mines in different parts of the world and try to buy direct off the miner or as close to the source as possible to give you the best deals.I had a factory in asia and a lot of these pieces of jewelery were made there.Natural stones/minerals fascinate me so I dont stock man made- laboratory made stones or imitation stones..I have a few sites at www.opalauctions.com and www.gemrockauctions.com which I head under the Seda group.I believe that your continued business is my business so I hope you enjoy the amazing array and beauty of nature I have to offer.Best Regards Paul Sedawie
