The Great Glass Slab at Bet Sheʿarim, Israel: An Early Islamic Glassmaking Experiment ?
JGS 41
The Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, 1999, p. 105-116

[801, 820]
• Slab of glass found at Bet Sheʿarim (3,40x1,95x0,45 meters):
- produced by combining a raw material from the Roman-Byzantine glassmaking tradition (the Belus-type sand) with a new raw material (plant ash);
- the two raw materials were incompatible, therefore the glass failed when it was melted under the standard conditions employed in this technology.

• Question with regard to the transition from natron glass to ash plant glass.

• Compositional analyses: SiO2, Na2O, K2O, CaO, MgO, Al2O3, FeO, MnO.
