theres 2 reasons for that, one from a method of coloring the glass (but probably not the case for you) or from the glass being "seedy", which is where when the glass gets melted the heat is not controlled properly through out the "charging" (melting glass to fill the furnace). small bubble are not a huge issue, more of a visual flaw than much of a strength issue

and that sir is the reason that bases break, even production glass like that is used for hookahs should not be as cheap as it is (in price or in quality)
