This is an amazing wonder from the sea. It's called SEAG
LASS and it comes in many shapes and colors. What is it? Glass found on beaches along oceans, bays, rivers or large lakes that has been tumbled and smoothed by the waves, water and sand, creating smooth, frosted shards of glass. The color of sea glass is determined by its original source. Most sea glass comes from bottles, but it can also come from jars, plates and windows.

Like collecting shells, fossils, or stones, combing shorelines for sea glass is a hobby many beach-goers enjoy. Hobbyists often fill decorative jars with their collections and take great pleasure in tracing a shard's provenance. Artisans craft beautiful, much sought-after pieces of jewelry, stained glass and other decorative pieces from sea glass.

Sea glass can be found all over the world, but the beaches of the northeast United States, California, northwest England, Mexico, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Nova Scotia, Italy and southern Spain are famous for their bounty of sea glass, bottles, art glass, marbles, and pottery shards. The best times to look are during spring tides and during the first low tide after a storm.

Here shown is a multiple 3some, cobalt, honey and cranberry seaglass.
