Ancient faience is a manufactured material created to imitate the bright colors and gloss of precious stones. It was used in jewelry throughout Egypt and the Near East beginning about 5500 years ago. It was made by grinding quartz or sand crystals and mixing them with various levels of sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and/or copper creating colors including turquoise, cobalt blue, purple and yellow and was shaped into such forms as amulets, beads, and scarabs. Faience is considered one of the earliest forms of glass making.
