Well, we were expecting the glass to be marbled as the description states and smooth, but be aware that the glass is NOT smooth, it actually has full size leaves pasted onto the glass, as if the glass was showcasing fossilized leaves. Sorry if this description is not clear. The light is still pretty and the leaves give it a natural look, however if you were expecting a smooth "marbled" look, you will be dissappointed. This is a nice light if you can live with the leaves. The description really fails to describe this product properly.
