The glass is first melted into a long rectangle. The high temperatures make the glass soft and easily malleable . Individual cuboids are then cut out of this glass rectangle. Due to the previous melting process, these cuboids are still easy to shape and are now placed in a hydraulic press and thus given their round shape. Now it's time Cool down to room temperature of about 20 degrees Celsius . In order to avoid imperfections such as surface irregularities and bubbles, the glass balls are cooled down very slowly and temporarily stored. After cooling down takes place first inspection of the raw material for cracks & inclusions . All solid glass balls that are of impeccable quality now go to the grinding and polishing , until they get their absolutely flawless and round shape have.
