Common Types of Glass:
Beveled Glass: Beveled glass is made from plate glass (flat glass), which is typically 3/16" - 3/8" in thickness that has been cut to create a sloped edge. The sloped edges known as bevels catch the light for a rainbow-colored, prismatic effect.
Clear Glass: A clear glass window pane that allows light to enter a space unobstructed. Clear glass can be flat, beveled, wavy, and even jeweled.
