Glass was discovered by the Phœnicians, or perhaps earlier. Representations of the process of glass-blowing are found on Egyptian monuments, and glass beads and fragments of glass vases have been discovered of very ancient age. The only mention of glass in the Ola Testament is in Job 28:17, R. V. It is translated "crystal" in the A. V. The mirrors referred to by the word "glass" in 1 Corinthians 13:12; 2 Corinthians 8:18; James 1:23, were not made of glass. The word is translated "mirror" in these places in the R. V.
