Speed of Light(c)

My mind keeps boggling around this question is speed of light really a constant or not?

the speed of light is constant, although light's speed varies depending on where it is. e.g. Light travels at the speed of light in a vacuum but if it travels through glass, it slows down as much as one-third of its usual speed. The speed of light is about 2 996 000 m/s but light's speed depends on where it is. try not to be confused.
