Moss Agate glass is a rare type of art glass that was developed in 1888 by glass freeman Stevens & Williams by John Northwood, with the help of Will Bridges, then the company's manager. It was the most sophisticated type of glass that is often called "stone glass". The concept "Moss Agate" was intended to imitate the mineral that it was intended to resemble in appearance and weight.
