Roman glass beads
The Imperium Romanum, also known as the Roman Empire, was originally a city-state on the Italian peninsula. From the sixth century BC it grew into a realm of about six million square kilometers and then covered all countries around the Mediterranean.

Even at that time, the ladies liked to be well dressed and to add jewelry and necklaces. They often wore several pieces of jewelry at the same time.

Although the prominent citizens could also choose from precious metals, (semi) precious stones and pearls, they still liked to choose Roman glass jewelry. Because that was already there in the most beautiful colors!

 

Nice color play
Roman glass beads, or Roman glass beads, are made from crushed crystal quartz mixed with sand, potassium, sodium carbonate and colored metals. A metal was added for the beautiful colors. The addition of copper provides for example the beautiful blue-green colors in the Roman glass. From very light blue to dark green. By adding cobalt you get deep blue colors. Manganese ore is added to get the yellowish colors. White Roman glass beads are created by the addition of antimony and the addition of iron provides Roman glass beads with a light blue, green, brown or deep black color.

Because it has been buried for hundreds of years, moisture and acids from the earth have left a beautiful iridescent play of colors on the Roman glass beads. This shimmer of rainbow colors and the opal shine on the Roman glass beads is created by the 'decaying' and 'digesting' of the glass. These natural and weathered patina particles on the glass in particular make the Roman glass beads particularly attractive and special.

Ancient
The term "Roman Glass" is used to refer to ancient glassware. Because not only beads were made from Roman glass. Utensils such as pots, vases and bowls have also been found. Oil and perfume were added and ointments and medicine drinks were stored.
