Glass Gem is a popcorn, but I thought it was too beautiful to eat. I prefer to keep mine from year to year to decorate for the Fall season. The flint type ears are a kaleidoscope of rainbow colors that have a sheen unlike other varieties of corn.

According to Native Seeds/SEARCH, this variety was bred by Carl Barnes, a part Cherokee farmer and plant breeder. Seeds became available to the public in 2012. The glowing colors resemble glass jewels, hence the name.
