Protection from damaging rays of light
Sunlight is recognized as one of the most important resources on earth. Sunlight is required for all living things: plant, animal, and human. However, sunlight can also have a degrading effect. If a natural product – upon reaching maturity – continues to be exposed to full sunlight, there follows an acceleration of molecular decay. Miron violetglass’ unique characteristics filter out these more damaging rays of the visible light spectrum, and allows portions of the UVA and infrared light waves in, keeping the products inside fresher for a longer period of time.
More specifically, Miron Violetglass allows 25%-45% penetration of light in the range of 380-420 nanometers (violet and UVA-frequency), and about 60% penetration in the range of 730-1050 nanometers (Infrared frequency). These parts of the light spectrum seem to energize the organic molecules of the products stored within.
The small amount of visible violet light that is allowed in gives the glass it’s beautiful dark violet color.
The origin of Miron
The appreciation of the special protective qualities of violet glass can be traced back to ancient Egyptian culture. In those times, valuable essences (oils) and natural healing products were kept either in gold or in violet glass vessels. In 1851, Jakob Lorber (Graz, 1800-1864, teacher, musician and mystic) described a method for creating sun healing remedies; sunlight photons absorbed into homeopathic globules. These delicate products had to be created -as well as stored- in dark violet glass dishes. According to Lorber, products stored in violet glass would be solar-enriched, and their energy preserved.
