Rare antique Czech Bohemian hand lampworked pink saphiret and amber swirl spun bicone oval art glass bead. Absolutely beautiful color but slightly darker than the images imply. Some internal crackling. Stunning hand made glass bead from the turn of the century for fine jewelry design.

Size: 53mm; 2.15"

Year: 1900's

Saphiret is an early glass used in jewelry making and was made during the late 1800s to mid 1900s. It was made in various countries, including Czechoslovakia and Germany during the mid 19th century. The glass was made by adding real gold to sapphire colored molten glass. This created an amazing color combination. The base color ranged from a mocha or pinkish brown to a brick red color, but the amazing part is when light strikes the stone, the glass reflects the light as a soft blue glow.  The stone is opaque to semi-opaque
