Glass

Post  Dzazo on Tue Dec 03, 2013 10:03 pm

The original creaters of the glass and the mirror were the Phoenicians. They used sand to make the glass and another unknown ( by me) product and was apparently made to scare away bad spirits. This was really interesting to me because I really wondered how they made it with sand and at the end I figured out it was melted sand.

Wow diego i had no idea that the Phoenicians were the one who created glass, specially made to scare bad spirits away. It must've been a really hard procedure at the time because of the lack of technology and having the great idea of melting the sand was incredible and has helped us a lot nowadays! Good job diego Wink

I always knew that glass was made out of melted sand but I never imagined it was created so long ago. I assumed it was a more recent creation. Yes I also heard that a long time ago mirrors we used to capture bad spirits and they were said to be the door between our world and the world of the dead. But those are just stories…
