Default Clear Hookah?

Does any vendor sell an all glass hookah? I think it would be neat to be able to watch the smoking from the bowl come all the way through the hookah and the juice dripping down the stem. They could sell it with a "homeade" hose that uses the clear tubing from home depot as well...

It would probably need to be made out of pyrex, for strength and durability, but I just didn't know if any vendor had done this yet...

TIA

I don't think I've ever seen a hookah with a glass stem. The reason probably is that if there was a glass stem, it would crack from the heat

glass can usually stand very hot temperatures. what causes glass to crack is a rapid change in temps..

however, pyrex is used in a lot of labs and cookware because it's designed to be more resilient to cracking. There's a mr. wizard demo of him putting a normal glass bowl and a pyrex glass bowl on a block of dry ice. he then pours in molten lead and the pyrex bowl holds up while the normal glass bowl cracks, causing the lead to hit the dry ice and smoke everywhere!
