Glass was a generic term for any molten silicon which could be naturally occurring (volcanic) or man-made and was, typically, very fragile. Glass was most commonly used in windows, corrective lenses, and drinking glasses.

On Admiral Kirk's birthday in 2285, Doctor McCoy gave him a pair of reading glasses. The glasses later were broken in a battle with the USS Reliant commandeered by Khan Noonien Singh. The glasses were sold in 20th century Earth at an antiques dealer in San Francisco who purchased them for US$100, noting they would have been worth more if the lenses had been intact. (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan; Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

An invidium contamination aboard the USS Enterprise-D caused a drinking glass to melt in the hand of its holder, Lieutenant junior grade Duffy releasing the beverage from within. (TNG: "Hollow Pursuits")

"Glass" was one of numerous words Doctor Julian Bashir randomly used after he was infected by the aphasia virus in 2369. (DS9: "Babel")

One form of glass was Tabalian glass. (DS9: "For the Cause")

After she was beamed aboard the USS Enterprise-E, Lily Sloane was surprised to see no glass covered a hatch to space. Jean-Luc Picard then demonstrated the function of a force field to her. (Star Trek: First Contact)
