  • Why is May’s exotic Third Friday a natural? A few glass factoids: Glass was discovered around 5000 BCE by Phoenician merchants. As early at 2400 BCE glass beads were being made in what is now Iraq and Iran. In 1500 BCE Egyptians were making vases, cups, artwork and jewelry from glass. And it is thought that the Phoenicians invented the technique of glassblowing around 50 BCE.
