Glass like brass

Assalamualaikum dan salam sejahtera,

Hi,  I just want to share a story that I had read..  I think this was a true story..

A long time ago, there was a man who made glass cup that cannot be broken. The glass is as hard as brass, which, as you know it was a very hard metal and very beautiful.
He went with his present (the cup) to Caesar. Everybody who was there said the cup was beautiful..
They also said he was a wonderful glassmaker..
He wanted to show the unique of the cup...
He threw the glass cup with all his strength on the hard floor.. Then he beat the cup with a hammer,
However the glass did not broken and did not left any mark on it..
Caesar was amazed. "Who else can make the wonderful glass like this?" Asked Caesar.
"No one does" the glassmaker answered.
Then Caesar asked his soldiers to head off the glassmaker..
"If people learn to make the glass, gold and silver have no more value than dirt!" Said Caesar.

What is the moral of the story? Share with me of you know it.. ^_^
