About Ancient Roman Glass
Ancient Glass, found in Israel, dates back to the Roman period and may be as much as 2,000 years old. For hundreds of years, these glass fragments of bottles, plates, glasses, and other objects lay embedded in oxide-rich soil creating their natural vibrant blue-green hues. Prolonged exposure to the damp surroundings caused patina formations on some pieces, adding brilliant luster and unusual textures, while other pieces found by old ports, like Caesarea, were washed for centuries leaving them clear and smooth.
