The comparison between properties of two theoretical models of glory on spheres with the refractive indexes of 1.33 and 1.81 and these of the natural glory phenomenon shows that the current version of glory formation by droplets of ordinary water with n = 1.33 is wrong, and the glory is formed by the droplets of A-water with n = 1.81, stably coexistent with the ice fraction in phase-mixed clouds.
