Multi-faceted early Czech and German Clear Glass
Ca. 17th to 20th century faceted beads .. showing the patina of wear & various shades present in "clear glass" produced by varying the amount of air entering the furnace & by the addition of iron, copper, manganese, cobalt, tin and antimony by the early glass-making master craftsmen. Collectible beads with character and history.

Due to difficulties in scanning clear glass beads, many facets do not show clearly and colour differences are more pronounced - due to the varying thickness of glass - than in actuality.
