Some say the invention of glass is recorded on the cuneiform tablets of King Ashurbanipal of Assyria. Others recount a tale of a merchant ship, laden with nitrium, encamped on a beach. The ship’s sailors, searching for stones to prop up their pots while cooking dinner, sought recourse in the ship’s excess cargo. Their improvised nitrium coals quickly melted to fuse with the sands of the shore, expelling streams of a translucent, shimmering liquid, which we know today as glass.
