Israel has large stretches of sandy dunes and beaches. As a result it was one of the largest producers of Roman glass in the Ancient Roman Empire. It was produced in a large range of colors and forms such as goblets, pitchers, vases, jars and bowls. Most of these vessels did not survive the past 2 millennia, however, shards are found in archaeological sites all over the Holy Land. Each piece of ancient Roman Glass endured the wind, soil and pressure to form the beautiful colors and textures you see today.
