Ordinary glass is fused with quartz sand, soda ash and limestone. It is a mixture of non-stationary silicates. And the coloring principle of glassware is, in the smelting procession add the compound of cobalt (Co), manganese (Mn), nickel (Ni), iron (Fe), copper (Cu) and other mixed elements, as an ionic state in glass. Because their valence electrons jump between different energy levels (ground state and excited state), they are colored by selective absorption of visible light, such as cobalt blue, manganese purple, nickel green and other colors of glass.

In the smelting procession of glassware add the compound of cobalt (Co), manganese (Mn), nickel (Ni), iron (Fe), copper (Cu) and other mixed elements, they are colored by selective absorption of visible light, finally it shows varied color as red orange yellow green cyan blue and violet. These metallic elements are usually considered toxic substances. In fact, they react with silicate oxidation to form four or six coordination complexes, very stable, 100℃ boiling water is impossible to decompose it.
