A stopper is a truncated conical piece of rubber or cork used to close off a glass tube, piece of laboratory glassware, a wine bottle or barrel and other containers with orifices. A rubber stopper is sometimes called a rubber bung, and a cork stopper is called cork. Ground glass stoppers are commonly used with laboratory glassware, mainly because of their nonreactivity.
