Profound Gilson Opals

Profound Glass was started in beautiful Colorado Springs, CO in the summer of 1996 with the help of Bill D. and Joe C.. During the first 2 years of Profound Glass, Nate spent much of his time learning the art of lampworking from intense experimentation, studying vintage scientific glass blowing books and taking classes with lampworking greats, Kevin O'Grady and Rodger Paramore. In 1997 www.profoundglass.com was created with the gracious help of Hugh and in 1998 "Profound Glass Gallery" opened in downtown Colorado Springs with the generous help of Chris Hock.

Now in Austin Texas, Profound Glass specializes in Gilson® created opal and are the largest distributors of created opal in North America. We are staffed by friendly, caring people who want nothing more then to help you, our customers, in any way they can. Profound Glass is proud that every employee is paid a living wage and provided with full health coverage.

Profound White Nano Shards

White Nano Shards
>Size = 0.25mm - 0.15mm

This opal provides a very awesome glitter-type effect when used in glass tubes. The material is small, but is a bit larger than powder and very usable in glass. This opal can be used in resin or any other clear application, and can also be mixed with clear nail polish for opal-ized nails! Our created opal is inert and won't dull or react to the chemical solutions. So get creative!
