Symbolism of glass has a long history, for glass has been in use since very old times.

In fact, glass was one of the first natural materials people used to create various useful and beautiful artifacts.
Five millennia ago, our ancestors used glass to make various types of tools and astonishing decorative objects.

Glass has been used for making various types of bowls, vessels, jewelry, weapon and so on. Much later in history, people learned how to use glass to make windows. In addition, glass has many useful and powerful properties.


Unlike semi precious and precious stones, glass is not believed by crystal therapy experts to possess particularly important healing properties.

However, glass characteristics could be equally interesting, inspiring and magical. Glass is eternal; you can break it into the tiniest particles, melt it down, turn it into magnificent forms, but it would always sty what it is, glass.

Glass is made out of all four essential elements. It symbolizes transformation, change, eternity and rebirth.

Glass is an impressive material, although, symbolically, it is commonly associated with ideas exactly the opposite of longevity and eternity. Glass is commonly seen as a symbol of fragility, vulnerability and brittleness.

Glass symbolism is dual. It represents things that are fragile, but also things that are protective and strong.

Glass could symbolize invisible protection, but also brittle, unsteady one. Glass stands for clairvoyance and ability to see through things. It stands for things you are aware and those of which you are not.

Today, we will talk about symbolic meanings associated with broken glass, which is a common motif in many different cultural systems.
