Sea Glass

- Naturally produced sea glass originates as pieces of glass from broken bottles, broken tableware, or even shipwrecks.

- They 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 to a frosted appearance.

- It takes up to 20 to 30 years, sometimes as much as 50 years, to acquire its characteristic texture and shape.

- Genuine sea glass can be collected as a hobby and can be used to make jewellery.

- Most common colours are white, green and brown. Purple is very uncommon but the extremely rare ones are grey, pink, teal, orange and yellow.
