Cherry Blossom Perfume Bottles: "Blue".. Art Glass created by Bryce Dimitruk - using a blow pipe like a paint brush, the artist weaves silvered glass and minerals into decorative layers, creating a petite blown perfume bottle that conjures up images of cherry blossoms against a blue sky.
An ancient Roman cup made of fluorite. Such cups were extremely valuable during Roman times. Aside from their outstanding beauty they were known for giving a specific taste to the wine. Pliny the Elder describes one noble who enjoyed his fluorite cup so much that he liked to not only drink from it, but to chew on its edge afterwards. - The Romans loved their poisonous minerals. Over time, fluorite can cause skeletal fluorosis.
