Ancient Roman glass cabochon, 5.79ct

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 high domed oval is very clean and have very few air bubbles. The color reminds me the translucent blue green of Mediterranean. 

  • 5.79ct, 12.98x9.53x6.35mm from Northern Israel.
