Where does glass come from?
From what I understand, sand (yes, regular Beach Sand even) is heated at ultra high temperatures, liquifies, then can be created into glass objects. There is also an Art Form where Artisans put a glass tube of sorts into the liquified state of the sand (glass liquid) and then blow it into forms like vases, paperweights, etc... any sand ... as long as it has ........ in it Glass cames from sand which was melted into Glass. ...

Is making glass from sand a chemical change?
The Journey into the hole <-- ew That is a easy question. Basically what you need to find out is whether you like silica sand or to use glass changes on a molecular level when heated (chemical change), or is just melted into another form (physical change). However, after some research, it appears that to make glass, you simply melt silica sand (or some other form of silica) into the resulting product... Glass! There is no chemical reaction or molecular change. The Conclusion Therefore, making...

What is glass?
Glass is created when sand is heated to high temperatures glass is basically an amorphous solid ( Not Supercooled Liquid) formed by melt quenching technique. It may contain sand (silica) but can also be formed using different glass forming oxide/sulfide. ...
Can an object being heated be hotter than the source heating it?
Yes, the only way for that to work is if you have the right amount of oxygen, though. Blue fire can get hotter if it's heated by red fire and sand can be heated by lightning, causing it to turn to glass. Without the the right amount of oxygen, the object being heated will only get as hot as its source. Very rarely does the object get hotter than its source. ...
