    I bought these both for the age, because Roman glass sound so cool, and the color. The blue is not a "hit you in the eye" bright blue, but a lovely subtle blue that can be enhanced with modern blue beads. I am working on a necklace combining these beads with aquamarine beads and silver beads plus some little brighter blue beads.
