Aventurine Gold Amber Murano Duck Blown Glass Alfredo Barbini


The Miotti family is credited with creating aventurine glass in the mid 17th century. They kept the process a carefully guarded secret for years. When the process was reveled it consisted of combining copper or copper salts with the glass. The mineral deposits clump together as the glass cools and create a shiny gold flecked appearance. These minerals create various colors in the glass, green blue and brown are the most common. Aventurine glass is also know as goldstone, stellaria or monkstone.

This Duck stands 8" tall with gold flakes in the base and a light brown amber glass. No chips or cracks...several bubbles on the interior.
