the history of glassmaking can be traced back to 3500 B. C. In Mesopotamia. Ever since that time, we've known glass is a very fragile substance. However, there is a storey connected to ancient Romans that talk about a type of glass that isn't only unbreakable but had the power to absorb damage. This invention is tied to the Roman Emperor Tiberius Caesar, as well as an unknown craftsman who brought a drinking bowl made of flexible glass to the emperor. However, Tiberius wasn't impressed with the bowl and trying to break its by throwing into the ground.
