Sea Glass

The beautiful sea glass I collected!!

Sea Glass is found on saltwater shores.  It is recycled by the sea, worn by waves, tumbled naturally by the currents, wave activity and other elements found in the ocean water such as rocks, sand, salt, and other beach debris.  Sea glass is a product of both man and nature.  Jars, bottles, and glass were carelessly discarded and tumbled by the ocean to form these colorful gems of the shore.  The frost and pitting of genuine sea glass is how you tell it was made by nature.  Another name for sea glass is mermaid tears.

Sea glass is used to make jewelry, create art, or simply put in a jar for display.  The very rare colors are orange, red, and yellow.  I was excited to find all three in the same day.

 
I also found this natural heart shaped rock!!
