WHAT IS SEA GLASS?
Worn by waves, recycled by the sea, sea glass is a product of both nature and man. Sea glass is found both on shore and in the ocean. Bottles, jars and glass carelessly discarded are tumbled by the ocean to form these colorful gems of the shore. These lovely collectible beach gems are vanishing due to plastics and recycling.
It can take 10-40 years in a constant surf environment for sea glass to "become" sea glass. A quality piece of sea glass has no shiny spots, is well frosted and has smooth tactile edges.
Wherever you find people and water you will more than likely find these sea glass gems! Walking along the shoreline, beach combing look among the pebbles, shells and other flotsam. This is where you can find these lovely frosted beach jewels. Beach Glass can be found on rivers, ocean shorelines and bays. The more current or wave action, the more likely that you are to find smooth top quality sea glass.
Higher water PH means that glass will age (become smoother) faster and the rockier and rougher the beach, the better sea glass will age.
