What Is Authentic Sea Glass?
Authentic sea glass is broken glass (bottles, etc.) from shipwrecks, boats or people onshore that for one reason or another has found it's way into the water.
Most sea glass is from the early 19th and 20th centuries and can be found along the shorelines of oceans, lakes and rivers.
It is tumbled smooth over time (years, decades, maybe even centuries...) and develops a lovely frosted patina from the action of water (waves, currents) against the sand.
These colorful jewels are becoming more rare, as the use of plastic and recycling increases. Sea glass is also know as seaglass, beach glass, beachglass or mermaids tears.
