Glitter is a collection of tiny, reflecting particles of various shapes, sizes, and colors. The surface sparkles or shimmers because glitter particles reflect light at different angles. Glitter is a smaller version of confetti, sparkles, or sequins.
Glitter has been manufactured from a variety of materials since prehistoric times, including stones such as malachite and mica, as well as insects and glass. Modern glitter is mainly made from a mix of metal and plastic, which is seldom recycled, prompting experts to urge for a ban on plastic glitter.
Henry Ruschmann, an American machinist, is credited with creating modern plastic glitter in 1934 when he discovered a means to cut sheets of plastic like mylar into glitter. When glass glitter became scarce during WWII, Ruschmann discovered a market for leftover plastics, which he crushed into glitter. Meadowbrook Inventions, Inc., which he created in Bernardsville, New Jersey, is still producing industrial glitter. He submitted a patent for a method for cross-cutting films and other related innovations decades later.
Today, over 20,000 distinct types of glitter are produced in a wide range of colors, sizes, and materials. According to one estimate, between 1989 and 2009, 10 million pounds (4.5 million kilograms) of glitter was purchased or manufactured, however the source gives no proof or reference point. The size of commercial glitter varies from 0.002 to.25 inches (0.05 to 6.35 mm) per side. To begin, flat multi-layered sheets made of plastic, coloring, and reflective materials including aluminium, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, and bismuth oxychloride are created. After that, the sheets are sliced into tiny particles in a variety of forms, including squares, triangles, rectangles, and hexagons.
