TIMELESS, UNIQUE design and superlative RARE TO FIND craftsmanship. Camphor glass got its start as a type of mourning jewelry and evolved into a cheaper replacement for semi-precious stones. The term camphor glass comes from the frosted look of the stones, which is achieved by treating the glass with vaporized hydrofluoric acid. This process subtly etches the glass, a look which mimics both clear rock crystal and gum camphor, a resin in rock form for which the glass is named for. The stones are most often flat, and sometimes have a starburst pattern on the backside of the stone to give the look of a radiant stone, many times with another stone set into the middle of the rays.Beginning in the 1880s these stones came on the market, with suitably elegant and detailed settings. As time went on, production of both the high and low end versions of camphor glass jewelry increased, coming to a peak in the 1920s and 1930s. This is why many people associate camphor glass with Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. But, in the Victorian era camphor glass was one of the mourning stones, as the lack of color was not considered immodest for a woman in mourning. White (and sometimes clear) mourning jewelry was often used to mark the loss of an unmarried young woman or a child.
The most luxurious pieces of camphor glass jewelry have settings that feature filigree, diamonds, or marcasite. Center glass : 0.6 x 0.88 Inches. Length: 7.5 Inches (190 mm).
