Matches are thought to originate from China in 577 AD and have changed considerably over the years! For example, at one point, they were made using white phosphorous which was linked to several health conditions. Nowadays, they are made without using chemicals which are harmful to the health of the user. The striking surface is usually made up of powdered glass as well as a few other materials. Many people collect match boxes with different designs, similar to collecting coins. The most expensive box of matches was auctioned in 2015 and sold for $6000.
