At the same time, the Calcedony process is responsible for the peculiar shades of colour found on this piece. In order to achieve the desired hue, a mixture of various metal oxides is poured into a molten glass stream.
The Murano Glass Manta-Ray is twenty-seven centimetres (10.63 inches) wide and twenty centimetres (7.87 inches) in depth. The product is MuranoVitrum-guaranteed and comes with a certificate that serves as proof of its authenticity.
