Etymology and history

The history of creating glass can be traced back to 3500 BCE in Mesopotamia. The term glass developed in the late Roman Empire. It was in the Roman glassmaking center at Trier, now in modern Germany, that the late-Latin term glesum originated, probably from a Germanic word for a transparent, lustrous substance.

Glass description

Originally, glass may have been discovered by accident, occurring as a curious byproduct during the making of glazed ceramic (faience ware) beads, or as a vitreous byproduct of the metal smelting process. Predating the invention of glass beads, so-called "crumb bead" were a mixture of faience, soapstone particles and cement. Glass was either colored inadvertently, by impurities within the basic batch of ingredients, or intentionally, using metallic oxides (pigments) to impart a color throughout to mixture. Color can also be affected by the absence, or presence of oxygen in the furnace. Some of the pigments used in the making of glass were also used to make cosmetics and paints.
