The commonest types of glass roller bottles are:

Matte glass roller bottles will have a frosted look to them. While these are superb looking bottles, one thing to keep in mind is that it will be difficult to accurately inform the quantity of liquid remaining within the bottle.
Gradient glass roller bottles could have a merging of two like colours collectively (ombre). These are very attractive bottles and still permit you to see the amount of liquid remaining within the bottle.
Solid glass roller bottles are the commonest (with amber glass being the preferred and common). They are just a single coloration, like blue glass. For this reason they are the most economical choice.
