Lithyalin glass is an opaque or translucent marbled glass with a surface resembling polished gemstones in a wide range of colours. It was first made by the chemist Friedrich Egermann (Bohemian, 1777-1864) in 1828 in northern Bohemia, and he patented the process in 1829. When this patent expired, similar pieces were made in France, Bohemia, China and Russia.
