Glass Abstract 374
Photograph - Photograph
Marbles, originally made of stone, have been around practically forever, but colored glass marbles get mentioned as early as the fifteenth century in German literature.
Colored glass has been popular for centuries for use in windows and household items such as drinking glasses. The earliest forms of colored glass were caused by impurities in the sand used to produce the glass. Later, colors were introduced deliberately into glass by addition of minerals or metals during the production process. Also entering into the composition are the reflections of shapes and colors in the environment.
