The coating that is created is very similar to a gemstone and, by careful control of thickness, different colours are obtained. The process of creating dichroic glass is highly controlled and costly process: to achieve the reflective properties of the glass scientists must fuse 30-60 layers of metallic ions on glass sheets in a vacuum-sealed environment.
While originally created for scientific purposes, dichroic glass entered the art industry in the past few decades as more companies mastered the process of creating beautiful colors and patterns. It is the flexibility of being able to create so many diverse patterns, colors, and designs that make it a great choice for making astronomical jewelry. The process for creating dichroic glass is thought to date back to the 4th century AD.
