"For more than 3500 years, glassmakers have been fascinated by color. Sometimes they imitate the colors of precious and semi-precious stones, and the history of glassmaking is sprinkled with stories of false gems and fraud. This lecture surveys the history of glass imitations of gemstones, with particular reference to medieval and early modern Europe.
