Ancient Roman glass cabochon, 8.52ct
Ancient Romans were masters of many things, including creating the most beautiful vessels of glass. Some of it is still found in Ancient Roman Empire territory. Romans did recycle a lot of glass they made, however, some has survived to our times.
This is a large oval, displaying tiny air bubbles and you also can see the inner glass pattern; something I haven't seen in many shards and adds a bit of a glow.
