Egyptian Faience

Ancient Egypt, Third Intermediate to Late Dynastic Period, ca. 1070 to 332 BCE.

Faience Beads were forms by grinding Quartz and other stones into a fine powder, then shaping it and firing it in a kiln where it recrystallizes into a glass. This process is how glass was made before the Romans invented glass blowing.
