However, to date, and although this is one of the oldest materials in the world, not all of the secrets of glass have been deciphered; there are still uncertainties in many questions regarding atomic structure and composition. What is generally accepted is a hypothesis deriving from solid-state physics assuming that glass shares the same bonding conditions like those found in crystals. A similarly complex scientific research field is the process of human colour perception; its components include the physical basis (colour spectrum), the psychological underpinning (colour valance) and the physiological base (colour stimulus), as well as linguistic aspects of colour perception. Indeed, a person's perception of colours is a subjective process, and different people see the same illuminated object in different ways.
