Glass Gem is a Unique Strain of Corn with Kernels that look like pieces of Rainbow Colored Glass.
These multicolored kernels of corn that look like glass beads belong to a specially bred variety, aptly named Glass Gem Corn, and they can be actually grown from seeds. Glass Gem corn was developed by Carl Barnes, a part-Cherokee farmer living in Oklahoma, who noticed that every so often, a cob showed signs of unusual coloring shining through. Barnes collected and saved those seeds, and thanks to his uncanny knack for corn breeding and many years of painstaking effort, Glass Gem corn was born.
An organization now sells Glass Gem seeds through its website for $7.95 (£4.90) per packet.
