Glass belongs to a group of substances which have unique properties termed: supercooled liquids. These have passed a rigid state without undergoing any noticeable structural change.
Glass is autoclavable. Due to the chemical stability of glass and its inherent resistance to corrosion, glass is one of the SAFEST and most comfortable materials for both new and healed piercings.
Glass is inert and non-porous and therefore hypoallergenic.
Most glass is artificial (made by man) but there are also natural glasses such as Obsidian and Volcanic Glass.

How to take care of your glass jewelry.
Like any other glass item, glass is fragile and breakable.
Jewelry smaller than 8ga and hanging jewelry in particular, due to its size are delicate shape, are more easier to break.
Glass itself has great inherent strength resistant to compress and shear forces. It also never disintegrates or explodes.
Instead a small crack is made that progresses to unusable jewelry.
Strength of glass is only slightly affected by composition but is highly dependent on surface condition.
Inspect your jewelry regularly for nicks and scratches!!
Glass jewelry is usually broken in the bathroom, as glass is easily scratched by tile floors and porcelain tubs.
Therefore remove your jewelry before bathing.
Use common sense and take good care of your glass jewelry and it will last a long time.
