Gold like glass?

I've always thought this description it was odd:

‭Revelation‬ ‭21‬:‭18‬ ESV

"The wall was built of jasper, while the city was pure gold, like clear glass."

But maybe the Romans understood the concept.  And if this kind of cup was used to detect purity – or warn of impurities that are present in what it contains – then the whole metaphor starts to get really interesting:

Just an idea; not going to start a new denomination over it.  :)
