Glass bead

The coloration in this drawn bead was created when additional layers were applied to the original bubble by the glass blower. The innermost layer of this bead is translucent, apple green glass. The middle layer is opaque, brick red glass. The outer layer is a thin veneer of clear glass. This kind of bead is called "Cornaline d' Aleppo," (Brain 1979:106).
