What is a glass stirring rod?

It's a short piece of cylindrical glass, usually about 12 cm long. It's used for stirring chemicals together. It's useful because glass is inert to most chemicals and won't contaminate anything.

It is a glass rod, which is a little larger than a pencil which has a blob at the end and is used to stir or mix liquids in a lab. Plastic versions are used as cocktail stirrers.
