2022 is the International Year of Glass (UN). According to archeologists, glassmaking technology dates back at least 6,000 years, though early Stone Age societies used naturally-formed glass for tools and weapons. From early beads to today's glass fibre optics, glass has a much-storied history. Glass has advanced civilization culturally, scientifically, and technologically with its unparalleled versatility.
