Century people creating glass rods, made of different colours to create concentric stars, by layering of a variable number of glass sheets of various colours and casting it in a mould then pulling the soft glass from both ends until reaching the desired thickness. It is then cut into shorter cylinders, then polished to enhance their detailed beauty, end result called Rossette or nowadays murrine or Millefiori which means thousand flowers in Italian language ( mille = thousand and fiori = flower).
