No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"

Despite common myth, the molecular structure of glass is not liquid but solid.

Hmmm.

Granite can chip too, but I would have thought glass was at the very least chippable even when so thick.

"cast glass monuments actually glow with life..."

:shock:  :?  :shock:

(Obviously, not as we know it!!!!)

The bottom line on molecular structure is that no molecular structure is "solid"!
Glass is a "super-cooled" liquid. So are pure metals.
I presume this is why molten glass in the pot is referred to as the "metal"?
