First off, if you are not sure what sea glass is, it is glass from bottles or other objects that the salt water has physically and chemically weathered over a certain period of time. This weathering gives the glass smooth edges and a “frosted” look to it. Typically it can take 1-2 years for sea glass to acquire its characteristic texture!

Genuine sea glass originates as pieces of glass from broken bottles, broken tableware, or even shipwrecks, which are rolled and tumbled in the ocean for years until all of their edges are rounded off, and the slickness of the glass has been worn.

Sea glass can be found in all sorts of colors, BUT some are more rare than others! To see all the types of sea glass that can be found please follow this link:
