Why are there so many words that start with a GL that have to do with qualities of light?


Words such as glimmer, gloss, gloam, glint, gleam, gloom, glitz, glim, glare, glaze and many others all have to do with light or light properties. I've not been able to find a common origin for these and the others, but even still, it seems that there must be more to it than just random coincidence. Anything come to mind . . . ?
